Wilkinson WV6

Average: 3.5 (19 votes)

The Wilkinson WV6 tremolo is Wilkinson's take on the vintage Fender design with a twist. This tremolo is a universal fit. Elongated holes mean the trem will fit on a body drilled anywhere from 54mm (2 1/8") right up to 56,4mm (2 7/32"). And as usual the WV6 sports the narrower string spacing at 54mm found on most Wilkinson trems. The narrower spacing gives a much more stable string lie across the neck, limiting the possibilities of the E strings slipping off the frets, a great little touch for anyone who likes their hammer ons and pull offs. The steel block is also sports staggered string holes to make corrections to the intonation a relatively simple job, without putting too much stress on the saddles, and as with all steel blocks, it helps magnify the overall sustain, brightness and top end, resulting in a more expansive tone. Another nice feature on the Wilkinson trems is the push in whammy arm. A simply solution to an age old problem! Wilkinson have installed a “clamping” bush inside the block, secured by a small bolt on the rear of the block.
