FRET-KING ESPRIT III ~ CANDY APPLE RED
Instantly recognisable iconic styling, radical, yet oh-so-familiar, yet somehow different, may be the best way to describe the Fret-King Black Label Esprit.
The long tenon set-neck construction, combining a three-piece centre block agathis body with fast-playing maple neck creates a solid platform for you to build your Esprit III's tone.
The distinctive reversed six-a-side in-line peghead, asymmetric body and WP90s, vintage '60s 'Long Tail' vibrato and signature oversized pickguard all add up to a real statement of style with attitude.
The reverse string tension and three stacked Fret-King WP90s give the Esprit III a huge range of core sounds. Master volume and master tone add to the dynamic and tonal range, while the Fret-King Vari-coil allows each of the stacked pickups to be rolled progressively back to single coil.
The Vari-coil and five-way switch offer endless permutations such as classic neck P90, definitive bridge single coil & hot bridge humbucker.
The smooth-as-silk Wilkinson, vintage `60s 'Long Tail' vibrato and the Wilkinson roller bridge, which features superb return to pitch, add even more dynamic and performance opportunities to the Esprit III a guitar which never fails to surprise, with a huge range of sounds, some very familiar, some a surprise, all exceptionally useable.
The Esprit III is an original Fret-King® Black Label Series™ guitar created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Fret-King design team.
