The new guitar features the Wilkinson ATD HT440 self-tuning hard tail guitar bridge, which allows for nine tuning presets.
The Super-Matic is the first guitar to feature the Wilkinson ATD HT440 self-tuning hard tail guitar bridge.
Built with Fret-King style and attributes, the Super-Matic is cut from matched, two piece centre jointed American alder, using heritage styling cues to create a subtly nuanced classic double cut body.
The 25 1/5" scale length, 24 fret, hard rock maple neck, with itâ€™s classic Shallow C profile, matched to a close-grain, indian rosewood fingerboard with a 10" radius, finished off with a fret job using single cut, hand-crowned medium jumbo nickel silver frets.
The Super-Matic features a hum-single-hum pickup configuration, with Wilkinson WHHBZ33 offset pole piece Zebra humbuckers, and a Wilkinson WHSM vintage voiced single coil middle pickup.
It features a combination of carefully voiced and balanced pickups and the signature Wilkinson Vari-coil control, which allows either of the humbuckers to be progressively wound down to single coil.
The guitar is available in either Black or Original Classic Burst and comes with a Fret-King carry bag.
The Wilkinson ATD self-tuning bridge has been under development by Trev Wilkinson of Fret-King and his team at Auto Tuning Developments. It is a super low profile, real time electro-mechanical device utilizing ultra hi-tech micro gearboxes. The bridge is designed to retrofit unobtrusively into a standard Strat vibrato bridge rout with a micro hex pickup.
Invisibly incorporating the microprocessor control circuitry, the ATD bridge allows the player, with just one touch of the function button to automatically tune the Super-Matic to standard E-tuning.
Tuning status is confirmed in the hi-visibility display, designed to be viewed whilst playing, and overall tuning is assured with the built in chromatic tuner.
Press the function button again, strum, and let the ATD change the guitars tuning from standard E to open G, or change to DADGAD, then to open D, or recalibrate to five additional user-created tuning presets.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry.
