Fret-King Corona SP ~ Firenza Red
The Corona SP is a tour de force, combining high-end building techniques, premium materials, player-friendly innovations and classic vintage tones with the usual Fret-King twist of delivering more than looks suggest.
Trev's decades of hands-on experience with designing guitars and hardware have always had a focus on perfecting the vibrato bridge.
The Wilkinson WV6SB `Five plus One' knife edge bridge has little touches like a delrin bushed, adjustable tension and height arm, which makes it so easy to use. The tempered steel base plate, steel tone block, and vintage spec bent steel saddles provide superior tone. The stagger drilled tone block and Wilkinson E-Z Lok staggered post height tuners need no string tree and guarantee the best return to zero you'll find.
The bridge mounted Fret-King P90 is stacked, and routed through a Vari-coil control, allowing the pickup to be wound back to absolutely authentic bridge single coil. With tradition infusing the rest of the pickup and control layout the Corona will give you all the tone you need to do justice to its effortlessly classic vibe and your music.
With a two-piece centre-jointed American alder body, Canadian hard rock maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, the Corona is tradition embodied.
Featuring a sculpted heel design for easy access to the upper frets, and with an extended tenon neck/body join for outstanding stability and sonic coupling, the Corona SP is the journeyman player's best friend.
The Corona SP guitar is an original Fret-King® Black Label Series™ guitar created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Fret-King design team.
