Vintage V6JMH ReIssued Electric Guitar ~ Olympia White 'Fillmore'

Item Code: V6JMH
RRP £329.00

Description

A true homage to one of the greatest players ever, the V6JMH 'Fillmore' its built from genuine tone woods, with top quality Wilkinson hardware and authentic recipe pickups. If you’re looking for a different kind of guitar vibe, the V6JMH definitely has more -guitar mojo’ going for it than most...

Check that left hand neck on a right hand body, for starters... Not only that, even though it’s a right hand body, closer inspection reveals that the full-toned, matched and calibrated set of Wilkinson staggered pole, alnico-powered single coil pickups are a left hand set, meaning that the polepiece sequence is also inverted, providing a unique tonality redolent of one of the most legendary guitarists ever... Especially as the bridge pickup position is also inverted meaning that the pickup bass side sits nearest the bridge with the treble side angled forward from the bridge! Otherwise, the cool-looking, unique-sounding V6JMH offers all the other impressive build quality and features found in V6 range, a comfortable, accurately-sculpted body; smooth, easy-to-play, mid-depth C-section neck, and a full complement of Wilkinson hardware designed for premium guitar performance.

V6 Features

Body:
American alder body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.

Vibrato:
The Wilkinson WVC vibrato bridge featured on the Vintage V6 is a masterpiece of detail. Positive location, 6 screw design provides return to pitch accuracy; perpendicular bend, high grade steel saddles enhance tonality and ‘snap’. Ground base plate corner provides authentic looks. Stagger drilled cast block significantly enhances return to pitch accuracy and classic vintage tone. The ‘push-in’ delrin-bushed arm with variable tension provides the arm feel that suits your style.
