NAMM 2017: Fret-King launch the new ELISE ‘GG’ Gordon Giltrap MKII
Fret-King launch the new ELISE ‘GG’ Gordon Giltrap MKII.
Designed in conjunction with UK guitar genius Gordon Giltrap and world renowned ‘guitar guru’ Trev Wilkinson, the totally reworked design of the 2016 Fret-King Black Label Elise ‘GG’ MKII (FKV3HGG) employs a two piece, centre joined mahogany chambered body with a double-carved solid maple cap and a figured flame maple veneer, finished in a gorgeous flamed Antique Sunburst.
The direct mounted Tune-O-Matic bridge with attractive ebony trapeze tailpiece provides superb tonal transfer and sustain, that resonates along its easy access mahogany set neck and ebony fingerboard. The Wilkinson neck mini double coil and standard bridge double coil provide a wide variety of tones, thanks to the ingenious ‘Vari-Coil’ control that allows the player to progressively wind down the pickup to achieve single-coil tones.
“What a beautiful guitar Trev has created” says Gordon. “I just love everything about it, from the luxury of ebony for the fingerboard and tailpiece to that classic antique sunburst finish.The pickup combination and ‘Vari-Coil’ are such a winning combination creating a superbly rich tone that suits my style completely.”
Complete with luxury genuine Fret-King carry bag, the Elise ‘GG’ will be on display at the JHS/RBI Music Booth 5279.
