FRET-KING 'JJ' JOHN JORGENSON ~ CANDY APPLE RED
The Fret-King Artist series has produced instruments for a number of world class guitarists, and none more widely known and respected throughout the industry than Grammy Award-winning string picker John Jorgenson.
The Fret-King FKV25JCAR, the second Fret-King model to carry Jorgenson's name, sports a solid American Alder body and a Canadian maple neck which is married to an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a singing tone with blooming sustain. John's choice of colourway is a lustrous Candy Apple Red which covers the guitar through body, neck and headstock.
Hardware comes courtesy of Wilkinson®; a WTB bridge equipped with three self-intonating saddles ensures that the guitar plays in tune all over the neck but retains a classic appearance. A matched pair of specially calibrated Wilkinson WVT pickups are coupled with two auxiliary 'ghost' coils; the ghost coils reside under the scratchplate, providing hum-cancelling and classic single coil quack and honk thanks to the Varicoil™ control.
The 'JJ' John Jorgenson Signature guitar is an original Fret-King® Artist Series™ guitar created by Trev Wilkinson, John Jorgenson and the UK Fret-King design team.
