With a stunningly striking and rare two-tone Silver Burst finish, the Vintage 25th Anniversary Series limited edition VJ74SVB 4-string bass guitar celebrates a milestone in the company’s history and is in honour of their 25th anniversary of guitar craftsmanship.

Based on the very poplar Vintage® VJ74, this beautiful bass is built on a solid foundation of classic Vintage craftsmanship and aesthetics, time-tested Wilkinson hardware and hand-picked tonewoods.

The VJ74SVB maintains the proven concepts within sound and playability that have earned the Vintage® VJ74 a fine reputation, with semi-professional and professional bass players around the world, as one of the best workhorse bass guitars on the market today.

With its striking two-tone Silver Burst finish, 25th Anniversary headstock decals and contrasting aesthetics, offset with a 3-ply black-white-black scratchplate, black pickups, black controls, chrome control panel and chrome hardware, the gorgeous Vintage VJ74SVB 4-string bass is indeed, a beauty in itself.

Like all models in this exquisite limited edition series, the gorgeous VJ74SVB 4-string bass comes complete with a Vintage 25th Anniversary embroidered canvas gig bag and individually numbered certificate of authentication.

Body:

US alder is the perfect choice for the body, not only to support the solid construction but for this popular tonewood’s ability to distribute an equally fine balance of high, mid and low frequencies.

Neck:

A bolt-on one-piece, hard rock maple neck is not only aesthetically stunning against the VJ74SVB’s 25th Anniversary Series Silver Burst finish, it also offers instant comfort, speed, accuracy and a great feel. It’s also an ideal blend with the alder body, to enhance a tight, focused low end, solid mids and high-end frequencies.

Pickups:

For ultimate clarity and articulation, a pair of Wilkinson WOJB single-coil pickups enhance the VJ74SVB’s tight, piano-like tones. With impeccable sensitivity and dynamic response, the Wilkinson WOJB single-coil pickups are perfect for all musical genres.

Bridge:

Wilkinson four-saddle compensated brass bridge saddles and chrome base plate provide improved intonation all over the fretboard.

Fingerboard:

With a high-quality rosewood fingerboard, pearloid dot position markers and 22 highly polished frets, the VJ74SVB is straight off the ‘plays itself’ shelf.

Nut:

A precision cut 38mm GraphTech NuBone nut stays friction-free, to aid tuning and playability.

Machine heads:

Heavy duty, chrome plated Wilkinson WJBL200, open-geared machine heads with vintage style elephant ear keys, ensure smooth and stable tuning.
