Designed in conjunction with UK guitar genius Gordon Giltrap and Trev Wilkinson the totally reworked design of the 2016 Fret-King Black Label Elise ‘GG’ MKII (FKV3GG£929 UK rrp) 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 Antique Sunburst.
The direct mounted Tune-O-Matic bridge with attractive inlaid 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. 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
– says Gordon.
Complete with luxury genuine Fret-King carry bag, the Elise ‘GG’ is available from your local Fret-King dealer.
