Charging to the other extreme with a
flick of the 3-way selector switch allows the back pickup to rage and
rampage through high gain amplification like no other. The Vintage V100
is a perfect example of Trev Wilkinson’s fascination with tone. Whilst
working in California, Trev’s development work in the guitar industry
led him to a meeting with the father of the humbucking pickup, Seth
Lover. Recognising a kindred enquiring and inventive guitar spirit, Seth
Lover imparted to Trev the exact specification of the mythical pickup
units he designed, and that same authentic vintage voiced recipe is what
Trev uses in the V100’s humbuckers to ensure you can get that elusive
iconic tone from the Vintage V100. The V100’s rock solid chassis allows
for positive string anchoring and location with the
precision-manufactured Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece. On
the elegantly-shaped headstock, a set of three-a-side Wilkinson WJ44
tuners offers both the precise tuning feel and accuracy you’d expect
from this type of guitar and – of course – the correct look, too.
The Trev Wilkinson-designed Vintage
V100 features a unique evolutionary body shape with a graceful
descending bass side shoulder and an ingeniously designed offset heel
providing improved access to the ‘dusty-end’ of the guitar's upper frets
and opening up your playing.
The V100™ is an original Vintage® ReIssued Series guitar, designed and created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Vintage design team.
