Built with all the hallmark Fret-King® style and attributes, the Super-Matic™ is a very cool looking beast, cut from matched, two piece centre jointed American Alder, using heritage styling cues to create a subtly nuanced classic double cut body.Hard Rock Maple neck and a premium close grain Indian Rosewood fingerboard with a 10′ radius, finished with an immaculate fret job using hand crowned medium jumbo nickel silver frets. The pickups are Wilkinson WHHBZ33 offset pole piece ‘Zebra’ humbuckers and a Wilkinson WHSM ‘˜vintage voiced’ single coil middle pickup.
The Fret-King Super-matic has a tagline “Possibly the only other guitar you’ll ever need”. Even if you just want to switch to drop D for songs, this system will mean tune all 6 strings while it drops your D string to ensure Peterson Strobe stopping perfection. The apparent simplicity of this guitar make it even more attractive, nothing has been taken away from the classic good looks and the micro hex pickup used by the tuning system is almost invisible.
