Featuring the Wilkinson WTB bridge this classic 3-saddle design has been around for over 50 years and is still regarded as the ultimate tone machine. Staggered brass saddles offer individual string intonation, never before available in a design of this type. The baseplate itself is a faithful reproduction of the original, made from steel, very important in a bridge of this style due to the tonal effect it has on the magnetic field of the pickup mounted in it.
Body: Alder body provides resonance, tone and ‘correct weight’ comfort, enhanced with correctly radiused contoured body.
Bridge: The Wilkinson WTB intonatable bridge featured on the Vintage V52 is a masterpiece of design, eliminating age-old intonation problems often found in three saddle, fixed bridge designs.
Pickups: Pair of Wilkinson Single Coils for traditional tones combined with contemporary power, courtesy of a WVTN pickup at the neck and a WVOB in the bridge position.
Controls: Single master Volume and Tone controls with three-way pickup selector switch.
