FKV6GW
Fret King Black Label Geoff Whitehorn Signature Model

Description

“I'm extremely proud to have a Fret-King with my name on it. The GW plays great, looks great, feels great, stays in tune, and the natural sustain is superb.”

With a career spanning over four decades, Geoff has 
featured in iconic, seminal rock bands like Crawler, where he filled the shoes of the incomparable Paul Kossoff, he's been the long-time guitar sound of Roger Chapman's band, and featured as Procol Harum's lead guitarist since 1991. An in-demand and tasteful player, Geoff's also worked with the likes of Eric Clapton, Sir Paul McCartney, Bad Company, The Who, Kevin Ayers, Elkie Brooks, Manfred Mann, Billy Ocean, and many others, so if anyone needed a versatile, consistently high-performing guitar that cuts through the mix, it's Geoff Whitehorn.

The '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. 

With a control layout orthodox in appearance, but more comprehensive than meets the eye, the GW has master tone for the neck and middle pickups, and separate tone control for the bridge humbucker.

Add to this a ‘push-push’ switch on the neck/middle pickup tone control which switches the neck and bridge pickup together, as well as a second ‘push-push’ switch on the bridge pickup tone control which taps the 'Prizefighter' to single coil and as Geoff says, "if you can't find the sound you want with this guitar, maybe it doesn't exist."
