The guys at Gear 4 Music not only run a great on-line guitar store but they also have great competitions. In their latest competition they are offering you the opportunity to win a Fret King Super Matic Electric guitar worth £1099.
According to the guys at Gear 4 Music the Fret King Super Matic is a great looking guitar. Cut from the Stratocaster mould the body is made from two piece centre jointed American Alder, using heritage styling cues to create a subtly nuanced classic double cut body, with cosmetics redolent of the shared history with which we are all so familiar. The maple neck has 24 frets with a classic “shallow C” profile and topped with a rosewood fretboard. The overall effect can only be described as amazing!
The Super-matic™ features a Hum-single-Hum pickup configuration, with Wilkinson WHHBZ33 offset pole piece ‘Zebra’ humbuckers, wound to a very authentic recipe and a Wilkinson WHSM ‘vintage voiced’ single coil middle pickup.
The combination of carefully voiced and balanced pickups, and the signature Wilkinson ‘Vari-coil’ control, (which allows either of the humbuckers to be progressively wound down to single coil), creates an instrument with an exceptionally versatile palette of sounds capable of literally any musical style.
The Wilkinson ATD™ self-tuning bridge, which has been under development by Trev and his team at ‘Auto Tuning Developments’ over many years, is a super low profile, real time electro-mechanical device utilising ultra hi-tech micro gearboxes, designed to retrofit unobtrusively into a standard Strat® vibrato bridge rout (or similar) with a micro hex pickup, controls small enough not to notice and an intuitive one touch button controlling all the functions and features of this truly incredible device.
Invisibly incorporating the microprocessor control circuitry, the ATD™ bridge allows the player, with just one touch of the function button, to automatically tune the Super-Matic™ to standard E-tuning.
Tuning status is confirmed in the hi-visibility display, designed to be viewed whilst playing, and overall tuning is assured with the built in chromatic tuner.
Press the function button again, strum, and let the ATD™ change the guitar’s tuning from standard E to open G, or change to DADGAD, then to open D – all in the space of just a few seconds, or recalibrate to five additional ‘user created’ tuning presets in just a few seconds more.
We think that this looks like a truly amazing guitar and well worth winning.
All you have to do to win the guitar is head over to the Gear 4 Music site before the 19th February and share the page on Facebook, re-tweet the page or email Gear 4 Music with your details. It is as easy as that.
