By 12 December 20112011, New Release

As the name suggests these guitars will appeal to country players, but no matter what kind of music you play, the ultra simple, single cutaway, bolt-on neck guitar that first appeared at the turn of the 1950’s lends itself to many diverse musical styles. The Country Squire range is Fret-King’s nod to the guitar that started it all! Throughout the history of rock’n’roll, guitars like the Country Squire have been at the heart of so many musical genres; country, soul, blues, rock, jazz and more.
