Fret King Green Label Country Squire Semitone V - Original Classic Burst with Maple Neck & Gold Hardware (Ex Demo)

Description

Created at the request of many pro players who needed even more versatility from their guitar, the Fret-King Semitone De Luxe is loaded with two Fret-King Alnico V vintage-voiced single coil pickups and a bridge mounted Fret-King humbucker. A five-way switch offers the traditional selection of sounds, plus the power of a full humbucker and middle pickup in position four. The versatility of the De Luxe is further enhanced with the precision engineered Wilkinson VSV high-performance vintage style vibrato.

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 start of the 1950s lends itself to many diverse musical styles.

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. The Country Squire range is Fret-King's nod to the guitar that started it all!

With the Green Label Country Squire, we have taken the liberty of respectfully raising the bar, with a 22-fret neck with medium jumbo frets, in one-piece maple with a deliciously comfortable 60s shallow C profile.

Both styles of neck utilise a 10" fingerboard radius to facilitate easier string bending, with a slinky, fast playing action.

There's a lot of mystique about original three-saddle bridges and why they sound so good. It's simple really with only three saddles, there are two strings to hold each saddle down firmly, so much less of the string's energy is dissipated trying to stop the saddles moving, greatly enhancing sustain.

The principal drawback of the original design, however, was poor intonation.

With the addition of the fully intonatable Wilkinson WT3 multi-adjustable three-saddle bridge, that unmistakable tone is now achievable; and perfect intonation, too!
