Vintage V58 Jerry Donahue Guitar - Ash Blonde

Description

For some years, Jerry’s ‘guitar arsenal’ has featured a Trev Wilkinson designed Vintage ICON Series V52, a guitar he, along with a host of other stellar players, rates very highly indeed.

Recognising the heart and soul of Vintage®, Jerry threw down the challenge to create a Vintage® guitar with his specification which he could be 100% happy with. The challenge was accepted by Trev Wilkinson with alacrity!

Using unique Wilkinson single coil pickups custom wound to Jerry's exact recipe and his custom wired five-way switch and circuitry, Trev has created an instrument which achieves Jerry’s vision – one single guitar which can emulate a huge number of the most instantly recognisable solid-body and semi-acoustic tones out there.

In just the flick of a switch, the V58JD moves seamlessly between soaring blues tones, rich dark midnite Jazz tones, ‘woman-tone’, the elusive `in-between quack-tone' and country twang!

From the playability point of view, the classic vintage style one piece fretted maple neck, with 7/14” radius fingerboard radius round off a real player’s guitar.

Jerry says; “Of all the special guitar projects I’ve ever been involved with in my quest for the perfect guitar, it’s a simple truth to say that with the V58JD Trev Wilkinson and Vintage have created (at a price I just could not have imagined possible) a most amazing guitar, and one which I use on a daily basis!”

 

Pickup selections

Position 1:

(neck-Wilkinson custom design WJDTn) Offers the rich, sparkling neck pickup tone of the traditional three-pickup guitar with that unmistakable single-coil sound that echoes the soaring, majestic blues tones of the '60s and '70s.

Position 2:

(neck with custom special capacitor) Exudes the instantly recognisable tonal quality associated with the iconic full-body jazz guitars. Kick in an overdrive and capture the classic late '60s ‘Woman Tone’.

Position 3:

(neck and bridge pickups with customised parallel wiring) Produces an enhanced, more contemporary version of the customary middle position timbre on the classic two-pickup guitar.

Position 4:

(Neck and bridge combined with a capacitor and resistor in a controlled degree of reversed phase) Offers the popular ‘in-between quack tone’ found in this position on three-pickup guitars.

Position 5:

Utilises a Wilkinson custom design WJDTb pickup with symmetrically staggered polepieces for great string balance and a special wind for increased sustain to capture the amazing gutsy lead sound found on the very best of those traditional two-pickup guitars!
