Fender Kingman Pro Custom Bolt-On
Fender expands their high-end acoustic line with the new Kingman Pro Custom Bolt-On, a modern version of the '60s era Kingman dreadnought.
Fender Sonoran SCE Wildwood IV
This new version features a bolt-on neck with a '68 era Stratocaster headstock, with a hybrid design that allows for an acoustic guitar to have the neck feel of an electric guitar.
Although the Kingman Pro Custom Bolt-On looks different from your typical acoustic, the body utilizes traditional building methods and tonewoods. It features a solid sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, forming the guitar's familiar dreadnought shape.
Being part of Fender's high end line, it features elegant appointments including the dual checkerboard rosette, aged white body binding and the nitrocellulose lacquer 3-color sunburst finish. Giving the guitar it's stability and projection is Fender's own forward shifted scalloped x bracing that utilizes red spruce.
The guitar's maple neck takes you from acoustic to the realm of electric guitars - featuring a maintenance friendly 4-bolt joint. It has a "C" shape neck profile with a fingerboard radius of 10", nut width of 1.7" and a slightly longer 25.625" scale length. It has a 20 fret rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot position inlays. The large '60s style headstock completes the look that made the Kingman unique.
The new Kingman Pro Custom Bolt-On comes equipped with Fishman Matrix Infinity Pickup system, which gives the guitar its amplified voice while staying discretely out of the way. Other features include vintage style tuners, 1-ply gold pickguard and a Viking style rosewood bridge with compensated bone saddle.
The MSRP for the Kingman Pro Custom Bolt-On guitar is $3,250, you can visit Fender for more details.
