Corona 60


Quick Overview

The Corona 60 is fitted with Fret-King custom pickups with the classic three single coil layout, in a balanced calibrated set, each with staggered-height Alnico V polepieces mounted in authentic fibre bobbins. Wound for that classic `sparkle', with a slightly overwound bridge pickup to balance the output over the whole set, the `reverse wound, reverse polarity' middle pickups give hum cancelling in positions 2 and 4.
Trev Wilkinson, father of Fret-King says "No guitar range would be complete without paying homage to the most famous double cutaway guitar shape of all time.
Making a guitar this shape is easy; however, knowing how to build one from the inside out is a lesser-known skill!
I have owned many of these guitars and repaired many hundreds more over the decades.
These years of knowledge and experience are the essence of Fret-King's `authentic vintage construction', and imbue my guitars with that true `vintage vibe'.
Built with either a hand-selected, two-piece centre-jointed alder or swamp ash body, the
Fret-King Corona is a classic combination of aesthetic and tonal perfection.
In keeping with the sixties tradition, this model has a familiar and comfortable shallow C profile maple neck with 25 1/2" scale length.
By utilising an original spec, small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood-to-metal, contributing to retaining all that elusive `vintage tone'.
Add to this the extra benefit of hardware that keeps you in tune and you have a truly rare instrument one that really works live, on stage or in the studio.
Vibrato is a fundamental part of the performance of these guitars, and you will not believe the tuning stability of the Wilkinson VSV on the Fret-King Corona.
Fret-King Corona guitars feature custom-wound Fret-King pickups, specific to each application. `Vintage voiced' and `hi-output' single coils and humbuckers, in matched, calibrated sets for a perfect balance between each pickup combination and selection."
