Wilkinson guitars, didn't expect that.
      27/11/12 04:36 PM
I just picked up a newish Wilkinson V100IT that I'm doing a setup on for a friend. And I am very surprised. It's a very decent guitar.

The back is made of two pieces of nicely joined wood, the front has a respectable bit of veneer on it. Bridge and stop bar are OK. Nut is adequate, no reall need to adjust it. Fretboard is very well finished. Machine heads are a bit loose loose to turn, and not as precise as a nice Gotoh, but entirely adequate. Quality of finish is nice, not as much of a plastic gloss as an Epiphone.

Plugging it in it sounds entirely decent, wiring upgrades would probably make it better still but there's a good tone here.

In fact the only thing that lets it down is the scratch plate which seems a bit inferior, but I think we'll be taking that off.

It seems to me that this is a decent guitar for not much money

So my question to you, are they all like this? If they are I think I may have found my new playing in a pub brand.

Thanks,

Grant.

I've never liked a solo violin, you need at least five for a proper fire.
