Fret-King's Esprit V turns convention on its head. With a reverse body shape, dual WHHB humbuckers and Vari-coil knob, this guitar is one totally unique axe.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Agathis body Even tonality and good resonance
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Vari-col control blends between humbucker and single coil tones
Fret-King WHHB humbucker Harmonically rich; tight low frequency response

Familiar, but different to anything you will have seen, heard or played before, the Fret-King Esprit V's distinctive reversed six-a-side in-line peghead, striking asymmetric body, chrome covered pickups and signature oversized pickguard add up to a statement of style with individuality and attitude to spare.

The long tenon set-neck construction, combining a three-piece center block agathis body with fast-playing maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and a direct mount Tune-O-Matic bridge, creates a solid platform for you to build your Esprit V's tone.

The twin double coil Esprit V is a classic rock layout, nodding towards tradition, then adding versatility.

The reverse string tension and twin WHHBs give the Esprit V a huge range of tones. Master volume and master tone add to the dynamic and tonal range, while the Fret-King Vari-coil allows each of the pickups to be wound progressively back to single coil.

The Vari-coil and traditional three way toggle switch allows permutations unavailable outside of Fret-King. Roll it all forward, and the high output bridge double coil will rage; switch to the neck pickup, back off the tone a little, roll the Vari-coil back a touch, and you could be listening to the sweetest neck mount P90 ever; switch to the middle, turn it all up, and get a massive wall of sound for the most amazing rhythm setting ever. The Fret-King Black Label Esprit V takes style and versatility to a new level.
