The Fret King CS Semitone Special is the culmination of many hours of R&D, and close work with professional guitarists to create a guitar that is packed to the gills with awesome features. With a semi-hollow American Alder body and top, and Canadian Hard-Maple neck, this is a seriously light guitar, but also retains huge tone and versatility. The neck itself is relatively thick, with a super comfortable V-shape that fits snuggly into the player’s hand, and thanks to the hard-maple, offers a snappy response to every note played, blending beautifully with the warmth provided by the semi-hollow body. The neck also features a sculpted heel, making playing on the highest frets a breeze!
The CS Semitone Special is loaded with a Wilkinson WVC humbucker, WHS single coil, and WVOBT alnico single coil pickups, giving the player almost limitless tonal possibilities, from warm, creamy jazz tones all the way to authentic ’52 Nashville ‘snap’, and the Vari-coil controls allowing ‘out-of-phases’ sounds to be utilised as well.
An exceptionally versatile instrument, and beautifully finished in a unique Ash Green Burst, the Fret King CS Semitone Special is a real joy to play, and a real contender for any serious guitarist’s arsenal!
