Introducing the Fret-King Black Label JD – signature guitar for Jerry Donahue, doyen of the string benders, and founder member of the legendary Hellecasters. When the opportunity to cooperate with Fret-King and Trev Wilkinson to create a guitar he could be 100% happy with arose, the gauntlet was thrown down…

With its single coil pickups custom wound to Jerry’s exact recipe, and five way switch wired and tuned to his specification, the JD meets his vision of a single guitar which really can sound like all of the most instantly recognisable solid-body sounds of the last 50 years.
