Country Squire Classic

Country Squire Classic

£499.00

Quick Overview

A subtly and sensitively reworked timeless classic.

The Country Squire Classic is built from the timbers which we've all come to accept as the tonewoods of choice: two-piece centre-jointed American alder body, Canadian hard rock maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard, providing a solid platform for superior tone and performance.


Continuing the legacy with well-considered design features, the Country Squire has a gently offset body with sculpted heel and slim horn, providing terrific balance, enhanced upper fret access, and an extended tenon neck/body join for stability and outstanding sonic coupling.


Unique pickup and control configurations allow for the tonal character which is the heart and soul of this style of guitar, to be the bedrock of all Country Squire models, complemented by a myriad of additional and eminently useable tones.


Design details are important, and we like to do it all right; the beautiful Country Squire Classic's first impression belies its versatility.


It's got all the `classic' tones plus the staggered pole piece double coil has a secret!


The dual concentric tone/Vari-coil control pot rolls the Fret-King 3+3 neck double coil down to neck single coil. Now, flick the selector switch down to the flat pole piece bridge pickup, and the Vari-coil will take you from authentic vintage '52 `Nashville Snap' to a creamy, focused single coil sound with enhanced mids and increased power.


The Wilkinson WTB bridge features a `cold rolled' original vintage spec stamped steel baseplate, which surrounds and enhances the magnetic field of the alnico V loaded bridge pickup. Adjustable, pre-intonated barrel style natural brass saddles ensure authentic tone and spot-on tuning. Two strings per saddle solidly anchor the saddles to the bridge baseplate, ensuring the maximum mechanical coupling so crucial to giving you all the power you need.


Players like Fret-King because we give more than is expected, and the Black Label Country Squires are no exception. Improving upon classics is tricky, but with the Black Label Country Squire Classic, Trev just may have done it!
