Country Squire

Country Squire


Quick Overview

As the name suggests, this guitar will appeal to country players, but no matter what kind of music you play, the ultra simple, single cutaway, bolt-on neck guitar that first appeared at the turn of the 1950s lends itself to many diverse musical styles.
Throughout the history of rock'n'roll, guitars like the Country Squire have been at the heart of so many musical genres; country, soul, blues, rock, jazz and more.

The Country Squire range is Fret-King's nod to the guitar that started it all!

With the Fret-King Stvdio Country Squire, we have taken the liberty of respectfully raising the bar, with a 22-fret neck with medium jumbo frets, in a maple/rosewood combination with a deliciously comfortable 60s shallow C profile.

The neck utilises a 10" fingerboard radius to facilitate easier string bending, with a slinky, fast, playing action.

By utilising an original spec small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood to metal, all contributing to keeping the vintage tone you would expect from this style of guitar.

Improving on a classic original is hard to do, but we just had to try. This model features twin vintage-voiced humbuckers for a beefier tone, and a Wilkinson WVS50 vibrato system.

In addition to all the enhancements above, the Fret-King Country Squire features a two-piece centre-jointed swamp ash body, and as the name suggests, is as real as it gets!
