Wilkinson WV6SB Tremolo
Wilkinson WV6SB Tremolo – a quick look.
- Only one of the holes is perfectly round (on the right on the photo) – the rest are elongated to accomodate bridge screws from 54 mm (2 1/8”) up to 56.4 mm (2 7/32″) – this may be quite handy for my beginner status!
- The string spacing is slightly less at 54mm meaning that the strings are less likely to skip off the neck: “Narrower spacing gives a much more stable string lie across the neck, limiting the possibilities of the E strings slipping off the frets”
- The steel block also features staggered string holes to make corrections to the intonation a relatively simple job, without putting too much stress on the saddles.
You can read the fuller blurb at the www.axesrus.co.uk website. They also have a neat diagram with all the measurements which I’ve copied in below for completeness!
