Description

Fret-king Green Label Corona 70 Candy Apple Red - (ex-demo)

 

**This is an ex-demo guitar with may display some minor surface scratches and some tarnishing on the nickel hardware.

Hand-built in the UK by Trev Wilkinson and his trusted luthier of many years Mike Smith, the Green Label Corona 70 features a matched set of Fret-King`vintage voiced' humbuckers with Alnico V magnets, solid nickel silver covers and the Wilkinson Vari-coilï. This is a guitar which performs way beyond its looks. With a master volume, master tone and 5-way pickup selector, the Corona 70 is ultra-simple and tonally diverse.

Trev Wilkinson, father of Fret-King says:

"No guitar range would be complete without paying homage to the most famous double cutaway guitar shape of all time. Making a guitar this shape is easy; however, knowing how to build one from the inside out is a lesser-known skill! I have owned many of these guitars and repaired many hundreds more over the decades. These years of knowledge and experience are the essence of Fret-King's `authentic vintage construction', and imbue my guitars with that true `vintage vibe'. Built with either a hand-selected, two-piece centre-jointed alder or swamp ash body, the Fret-King Corona is a classic combination of aesthetic and tonal perfection. In keeping with the sixties tradition, this model has a familiar and comfortable shallow C profile maple neck with 25 1/2" scale length. By utilising an original spec, small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood-to-metal, contributing to retaining all that elusive `vintage tone'. Add to this the extra benefit of hardware that keeps you in tune and you have a truly rare instrument one that really works live, on stage or in the studio. Vibrato is a fundamental part of the performance of these guitars, and you will not believe the tuning stability of the Wilkinson VSV on the Fret-King Corona. Fret-King Corona guitars feature custom-wound Fret-King pickups, specific to each application. `Vintage voiced' and `hi-output' single coils and humbuckers, in matched, calibrated sets for a perfect balance between each pickup combination and selection."
