Vintage V52 Blackguard Tele


Vintage Punch

Hear each note twang. From each of the Wilkinson WVOB and WVTN single coils flows bright, vibrant tone which is full of flavour. Dancing with brightness, clarity, and vintage goodness, they will make each riff you play gleam with pure expression. Whether you’re playing some wailing lead lines or locking down some tight rhythm, these pickups will ensure that every detail of your sound comes out.

Maple on Maple – Perfect your Playing

The golden combination. A maple neck with a maple fretboards makes for a beautifully bright tone, helping to deliver the punch of the single coil pickups. Expect plenty of snap, sustain, and bite, with power in the midrange and highs. The neck and fretboard are also exceptionally smooth, meaning you get fluid manoeuvrability across each and every fret – ideal for soloing.

Iconic Body Shape

Dynamic design at your fingertips. You’ll no doubt recognise the shape of this guitar – it’s been used by many legends over the years. The single cutaway design allows you to reach the upper frets with complete ease, whilst the contours will fit naturally around your body. This makes the V52 ideal for long performances, where you’ll need to ensure you’re comfortable and can play without restriction.
