Vintage V52 Icon Electric Guitar – Distressed Butterscotch

Description

The V52MRBS is the archetypal workhorse electric guitar, capable of providing a multitude of musical tones from its simple array of pickups and controls. However, in keeping with the Vintage ethos, the ICON Series features some deceptively future-proof design tweaks. Fixed bridges with three saddles are notoriously prone to intonation problems; the inclusion of the Wilkinson WTB bridge remedies this, allowing your leadwork and chordplay to ring true all over the neck. Likewise, a ‘soft C’ profile allows unparalleled playability up and down the fretboard.

Good things come to those who wait – but who has the time for that? The Vintage ICON Series replicates the beautiful, worn-in look and feel of an instrument that has paid its dues, without investing the lifetime’s worth of woodshedding, rehearsing, performing and travel. This is a guitar that already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is your journey is just beginning. Play on.

A Vintage ICON electric already looks like your lifetime companion; the best part is, your journey is just beginning. Play on.
