Quick Overview

The Fret-King FKV25JCAR, the second Fret-King model to carry Jorgenson's name, sports a solid American Alder body and a Canadian maple neck which is married to an Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

The Fret-King Artist series has produced instruments for a number of world class guitarists, and none more widely known and respected throughout the industry than Grammy Award-winning string picker John Jorgenson. Be it as band leader, country supergroup member, sideman for anyone from Elton John to Johnny Cash, or Guitar-X masterclass performer, Jorgenson's eclectic influences and kitchen sink playing style demand an instrument that is every bit as flexible, adaptable and multi-faceted as he is.


The Fret-King FKV25JCAR, the second Fret-King model to carry Jorgenson's name, sports a solid American Alder body and a Canadian maple neck which is married to an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The result is a singing tone with blooming sustain. John's choice of colourway is a lustrous Candy Apple Red which covers the guitar through body, neck and headstock; an eye catching finish that is truly dazzling under the stage lights.


Hardware comes courtesy of Wilkinson®; a WTB bridge equipped with three self-intonating saddles ensures that the guitar plays in tune all over the neck but retains a classic appearance. A matched pair of specially calibrated Wilkinson WVT pickups are coupled with two auxiliary 'ghost' coils; the ghost coils reside under the scratchplate, providing hum-cancelling and classic single coil quack and honk thanks to the Varicoil™ control. Jorgenson demanded that his signature guitar be able switch from smoking hot gypsy jazz to cutting country and shred at the roll of a dial, and the FKV25JCAR doesn't disappoint.
