Bringing a subtle blend of classic looks with modern specification to the Vintage electric range, the new V72 models set a new standard for playability and tone.
The Reissued Series V72HFTB features an American alder chambered body matched to a one-piece hard maple neck. Its modern bridge design with through-body stringing gives excellent sustain and superb tone, which is captured through the Wilkinson WHHB double-coil pickups, with their tight low-frequency response and crisp highs.
Utilizing the same fine woods and materials, the Reissued Series V72FTB is fitted with a Wilkinson WDG mini double-coil pickup at the neck position, which provides excellent sustain with increased highs and is matched to a Wilkinson Alnico V WVTB single-coil bridge pickup. The cold rolled-steel “ashtray” base interacts with both the pickup and the intonated brass saddles to provide authentic, classic tone.
Both guitars feature attractive book-matched flame-maple veneer tops, Wilkinson WJ55 machine heads, 22 medium fret rosewood fingerboards, and classic volume, tone and three-way switching.
STREET PRICES: V72HFTB, $499; V72FTB, $479
