The Artist Series Range

Artist Series™

Part of the Black Label design brief was to listen to pro players, and to work with them to create their ideal guitar.

Hugely experienced players like John Jorgenson, Danny Bryant, Jerry Donahue, Dave ‘Bucket’ Colwell, Gordon Giltrap, John Verity and Geoff Whitehorn – all players who have definitely paid their dues and reflect a huge variety of styles. As well as being great players, they know a thing or two about guitars, and have collaborated with us to create a series of artist-inspired guitars featuring attributes that all players will find valuable, useful, and above all, musical.
 
The Fret-King Artist Series ethos, is to create ‘signature’ instruments with the world’s leading guitarists to enable their vision, their “art”, musical concepts and playing styles to be seamlessly transported to the outside world. Each Artist Series instrument is a unique creation, the bringing together of decades of the artist’s playing expertise and experience with that of the legendary Fret-King design team’s design and construction knowledge, to translate the concept into the very embodiment of the artist’s singular vision.
 
Each player has their own specific needs, covering the playability, feel, styling cues, cosmetics, timbers, tonality, pickup configurations, control layouts, functionality, tone circuitry and flexibility required to deliver the ‘sound that’s in their head’.
 
Above all, flexibility is the key with Fret-King Artist Series guitars; each model delivers the traditional wide tonal palette which Fret-King is renowned for, supplemented by designed in magic which further enhances the palette which drills down directly to the artist’s signature sounds and brings truly awesome guitar tones available to a broad range of players and styles.
