These four new guitars add to their ever expanding Reissued Line, all of which come with vintage style guitar looks and feel and feature high specs at a price point that is lower than what others have to offer.

Vintage is a sub brand of JHS, specializing in producing affordable guitars that follow after tried and tested classic designs. And the Reissued Series in particular is their ode to the venerable Strat, aiming to faithfully replicate the look and feel of premium vintage specimens while making them more affordable and accessible. Now four new models are added to this series, two variations of V6H, and two variations of the V6P.

The Reissued Series V6H models have Strat style double cutaway alder bodies, while others of the same price point go for cheaper alternatives. For added aesthetics, Vintage added book matched flame maple veneer to the top portion of the body, giving the guitar a more premium appeal. The body is wrapped in tobacco burst finish with matching white/black/white pearl pickguard.

Adding to its premium specs is the one piece maple neck which is topped by a rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays. Following traditional build, the 22 fret neck has a scale length is 22.5".

For electronics, Vintage equipped this guitar with HSS pickup configuration, all Wilkinson designed. The single coil pickups on the neck and middle position feature Alnico V WHS magnets, designed to mimic the tone of old school Strat style guitars. A Wilkinson WHHB humbucker is placed on the bridge position for added sustain and bite.

The V6HHFTB model comes with a Hardtail, ideal for players who are looking for sustain while the V6HFTB model has a Wilkinson Vibrato bridge for those looking for added expression control.

The other two models are the V6HPFCB (Hardtail version) and the V6PFCB (Vibrato version). These two models have the same type of wood and body shape, the main difference being the type of pickup used. Instead of the usual humbucker or single coil pickup, this model features a trio of P90 style pickups from Wilkinson, labeled as WP90SK. This is an interesting addition to a Strat style guitar and should give the instrument a different voice.

The four new Vintage guitars are scheduled for release very soon, the price of which are as follows:

  • V6HHFTB - Hardtail £249 rrp
  • V6HFTB - Vibrato £269 rrp
  • V6HPFCB - Hardtail £279 rrp
  • V6PFCB - Vibrato £299 rrp

Further information about these new guitars will be available soon at JHS.
