Fret-King Black Label Corona GW

By | 2012, New Release | No Comments
The new Fret-King Geoff Whitehorn ‘GW’ Corona is a thoughtful take on a classic, but with an edge, and like Geoff’s playing, is precise, melodic and articulate. Sonically, with the somewhat unorthodox pickup combination of a P90 in the neck position, a throaty single coil in the middle, and a roaring Wilkinson ‘Prizefighter’™ humbucker in the bridge position, the GW covers an immense range of fundamental tones.

Fret-King Black Label Country Squire Semitone

Fret-King Black Label Country Squire Semitone

By | 2012, New Release | No Comments
The Fret-King Country Squire is a subtly and sensitively reworked timeless classic. Elegant and capable, the semi-acoustic, chambered-bodied Country Squire Semitone is traditional and versatile all at the same time. The Semitone sports an extra mini knob controlling the Fret-King ‘Vari-coil’™ circuit, which progressively rolls back the humbuckers to custom voiced single coils, so in the spin of a knob you can go from roaring high output bridge humbucker, to sweet mellow neck single coil, then back again in an instant to that oh so familiar single coil bridge bite.

Fret-King Ventura Super 60 SSH

By | 2011, New Release | No Comments
Players who prefer a palette of more traditional ‘working guitar’ tones will appreciate the flexibility offered by the Ventura Super 60 SSH option. Tonal versatility is equally paramount on the Ventura Super agenda via the exciting and creative options offered by the Ventura’s SSH pickup layout of two custom designed, Wilkinson vintage voiced alnico V-single coil pickups, plus bridge-mounted Wilkinson WHHB humbucker controlled by the Fret-King ‘Vari-coil’ control, rolling the humbucker smoothly from traditional humbucker to classic single coil.
