Fret-King Unveils Elise ‘GG’ Gordon Giltrap MKII

JHS has announced the launch of a new Gordon Giltrap/Trev Wilkinson collaboration – the Fret-King Black Label Elise ‘GG’ MKII.

JHS says the totally reworked design of the guitar has resulted in a two piece, centre joined mahogany chambered body with a double-carved solid maple cap and a figured flame maple veneer, finished in Antique Sunburst.

The direct mounted Tune-O-Matic bridge with inlaid ebony trapeze tailpiece: ‘provides superb tonal transfer and sustain, that resonates along its easy access mahogany set neck and ebony fingerboard.,’ JHS says. The Wilkinson neck mini double coil and standard bridge double coil provide a wide variety of tones, thanks to the ingenious ‘Vari-Coil’ control that allows the player to progressively wind down the pickup to achieve single-coil tones.

‘What a beautiful guitar Trev has created’ Gordon Giltrap is quoted as saying. ‘I just love everything about it, from the luxury of ebony for the fingerboard and tailpiece to that classic antique sunburst finish. The pickup combination and ‘Vari-Coil’ are such a winning combination creating a superbly rich tone that suits my style completely.’

Complete with luxury Fret-King carry bag, the Elise ‘GG’ has an RRP of £929.
