Yes it is a Vintage a pre Wilkinson VS6 I gave the head a Gibson shape makeover as I was going to do a Fool copy but ended up with this it has Schallar Pups and Gotoh bridge and tail piece that I had laying around fantastic guitar has been played a lot as you can tell from the ware on the gold parts.


The VRS as standard but new nut as previous owner cut it too low and I have fitted Iron Gear PuPs with coil taps on a push push switch on tone control.


The V6 Blackie is as it came from the factory but has had a decent set up. Now does all my gigs and jam nights at least 3 a week with no problems for the past two and a half years.

Haha thanks! I just took the chrome covers off of the stock pickups. I found that cover-less pickups give more treble and bite and are easier to get feedback out of.

it's very useful, splitting the humbuckers allows it to sound very strat like, especially the bridge coil in the right. I don't use the parallel positions very often

Doesn't the VRS100 have that ability?!

Pre- or post-Wilkinson Vintage; does it make a difference?

Post  m1234 on Mon Aug 29, 2011 10:32 am

I bought a Vintage Les Paul style sunburst guitar a couple of weeks ago. The fellow I bought it off said he got it new 2 years ago so I thought it would therefore be a post-Wilkinson guitar, but it doesn't have Trevor Wilkinson written on the pick-ups? Also it has gold plated machine heads that look a bit different to the green plastic ones on the latest Vintage V100 guitars. Does anyone know if it is a pre-Wilkinson guitar and if changing the pick-ups to the Wilkinson pick-ups will make a noticeable improvement to the sound?
If I can work out how to post an image I will post one so you can see it!

I made some upgrades on both my VRS100 and V100 guitars:
- Graphtech nuts (both guitars)
- New switches, capacitors and pots (both guitars)
- Coil tap (both guitars)
- Series/Parallel switch (V100)
- Irongear Rolling Mill humbuckers, bridge is overwound (VRS100)
- Wilkinson Zebra humbuckers (V100)

Here's the final result:

V100


VRS100


I am happy with both upgrades, though the V100 still needs a bit more work from my technician (the isolation is not the best).

The VRS100 is a fantastic guitar, made even better with these fantastic pickups.

running humbucker in series will give you fat muddy tone,not all that useable with humb great for single coils.unless you are going for a out of phase with both p/ups , I would take that switch and use it to bypass the tone circuit and run the p/up straight to the output.more gain out wazoo.the tone circuit robs gain unless you use a volume pot like a 1 megaohm pot for humb available from torres engineering.com

this is the guitar I chose when I was forced to sell my gibson lp of which I have owned one for many years starting from the 70s with the lawsuit Ibanez with super 70s p/ups.I became disabled now,bad hip replacements,all my high end guitars had to go.unfortunately buying online doesnt really give you the chance to play it.Johnson guitars from musicians heaven are well built,mahogany ,real maple cap,plays very well,great setup,but the emg selects need to be changed asap. then I found the vintage v100 icons,9 lbs of the best playing because of the 60s style neck(close enough). the p/ups are very old paf tone which is good. But the v100 just feels right like my gibson did.I always put a roller bridge from guitarfetish.com on all my tuneomatic bridges,less string breakage and I believe more tone and sustain,and change the nut to maybe an earvana or graphite. the AFD is next because the maple cap is thicker and a killer finish.Check out a gfs mean 90 p/up in the neck position .If you like Gary Moore woman tone that p/up is the best and only 30 dol.cheers
