Fret-King Perception Bass
Trevor Newnham

The Illegal Eagles – UK
“I’ve been playing Fret-King Perception basses for over a decade and this new version really is something else. I have limitless tone options at the twist of a pot and the balance/feel of the instrument means it truly is a joy to play in any musical setting. It’s true what they say. Perception is everything!”

Fret King Elise
Oliver Sean

Oliver Sean Band – UK
"One of the most verstile guitars I have played. I am a "heavy hitter" on stage, and I was amazed that I didn't break a single string during my 21 day intense tour of America with the Oliver Sean Band."

"I have been using my Fret-King guitars extensively for both live shows and studio work. The tone constantly amazes me, and the build quality can withstand the rigors of the road. They easily stand their ground against other guitars at many times the cost, and a provide a modern twist with some vintage vibes!"

Anything from funky single coil tones to full on heavy riffing is just made so simple on a Fret King."
