Brand new for 2019, the Vintage V624FRBK is a metalhead's dream. Clad in a mean, matt black finish, and equipped with a duo of high output Wilkinson® double coil pickups, the V624FRBK is designed to be played hard, fast and loud.
A slim, 24 fret maple neck, huge access scoop and slick body contours means this guitar is built for speed; lightning fast legato and blistering rock runs are a cinch, whilst a chamfered neck joint and deep dual cutaways provide unlimited access to the fingerboard, which spans an entire two octave range. The V624FRBK also sports a reverse headstock, completing its classic rock appearance.
Switching between the two Wilkinson® pickups is kept simple with a single pot a side for tone and volume, whilst a three-way pickup selector switch allows a choice of neck, bridge or both pickups together. The classic combination of straight-ahead rock sounds and simplicity of design is crowned by the V624FRBK's ace in the hole; the Floyd Rose® Special locking tremolo system.
Initially a staple of the hot-rodded rock machines that launched the LA metal scene, the Floyd Rose® locking tremolo has been a mainstay of metal guitar ever since. In 2019, the V624FRBK pays tribute to its hard rock history, but is ready to excel in any modern musical context. From screaming harmonics and divebombs to ethereal shimmers and imitation slide guitar, the Floyd Rose® Special facilitates extended forms of musical expression whilst keeping your tuning stability under lock and key.
Celebrate the sounds of metal guitar's history, and break new ground, with the Vintage V624FRBK – a guitar ready to explore the past, present and future of rock.
