Fret-King Atelier Model Ventura 80 - Laguna Blue

One of two 60s-inspired Venturas we just had to build!

FKA2046
Fret-King Atelier Model Ventura 80 - Laguna Blue

Description

Hand-built in the UK.

In the Fret-King workshop – an airy, vibrant and atmospheric Atelier in an elegant Victorian workshop in the genteel seaside town of Southport on England’s North West coast – Trev Wilkinson, working with Mike Smith, his master builder of many years’ experience, craft the occasional extra special, unique Fret-King Atelier guitar to show what can be done when the creative process is allowed to break free of the bounds of conformity.

Beyond even the excellence of UK-built Fret-King Green Label guitars, these unique styling exercises are exotic one-off creations and can be many things; stunning custom finishes, a particular combination of esoteric specifications or materials, rare and beautiful tone woods, an embellishment of precious metal, an experimental pickup configuration or switching, a new take on a body shape... But whatever, while hovering between the boundaries of master-built musical instruments, exclusive luxury goods, and art, a Fret-King Atelier guitar is the embodiment of Trev Wilkinson’s imagination, and showcases the capabilities of the Fret-King styling studio, with each creation being an awe-inspiring and highly desirable object of beauty.

No Fret-King Atelier guitar will ever be repeated exactly and the discerning few who will own one will possess a peerless and very collectable player’s guitar.

Laguna Blue body with matching headstock, complimented with a custom vintage aged tortoiseshell lacquered pick guard, all topped off with vintage ivory coloured switch and arm tips. Two vintage-voiced custom Fret-King double coil pickups give punchy vintage tone.

Carefully selected American alder centre joint body. Hard maple neck with 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Height adjustable locking tuners. Wilkinson VSV bridge. Three-way pickup selector switch, master volume and tone controls.

Cooler than a big American fridge!
