The Fret-King? Super-matic? self-tuning guitar, is the first ever guitar to feature the truly outstanding and innovative Wilkinson ATD HT440? self-tuning hard tail guitar bridge.
Built with all the hallmark Fret-King? style and attributes, the Super-Matic? is a very cool looking beast, cut from matched, two piece centre jointed American Alder, using heritage styling cues to create a subtly nuanced classic double cut body, with cosmetics redolent of the shared history with which we are all so familiar.
The 25 1/5? scale length, 24 fret, Hard Rock Maple neck, with it?s classic ?Shallow C? profile, matched to a premium, close grain Indian Rosewood fingerboard with a 10? radius, finished off with an immaculate fret job, using single cut, hand crowned medium jumbo nickel silver frets assures precision, comfort and provides a playing experience which can only be described as luxurious.
The Super-matic? features a Hum-single-Hum pickup configuration, with Wilkinson WHHBZ33 offset pole piece ?Zebra? humbuckers, wound to a very authentic recipe and a Wilkinson WHSM ?vintage voiced? single coil middle pickup.
The Wilkinson ATD? self-tuning bridge, which has been under development by Trev and his team at ?Auto Tuning Developments? over many years, is a super low profile, real time electro-mechanical device utilising ultra hi-tech micro gearboxes, designed to retrofit unobtrusively in to a standard Strat? vibrato bridge rout, (or similar), with a micro hex pickup, controls small enough not to notice, and an intuitive one touch button controlling all the functions and features of this truly incredible device.
