Description

The Fret-King® Corona epitomises Fret-King’s holistic approach to guitar design. Retrospective, yet forward looking this is a guitar ready to take on any musical style.

The Corona Classic, with its bridge mounted Fret-King Fifty-Five™ double coil and mid/neck Vintage Sixty™ pickups is so versatile. It will deliver everything from full throated, blistering double coil power, to as much nuance as you’d ever like to feed into a tonal palette of staggering breadth.

From a playability perspective, it’s comfort and familiarity all the way. The Vibrato, a Wilkinson® WV6SB, is a tour de force. Steel block for tone, 5+1 knife edge, no string trees and Graph Tech® nut all work together for near perfect return to zero.

Corona Classic Features

Body:
The three-piece body with 4” centre block is constructed from selected American alder. The body, with its vintage edge radiuses casts a classic shadow. The unique reduced profile neck joint offers enhanced upper fret access, and the front and rear comfort cuts make the Classic a pleasure to wear. A solid four bolt neck joint ensures the constructional and mechanical integrity which provides a platform for great sustain and the harmonious, authentic tonalities of the Corona Classic.

Headstock:
The signature Fret-King headstock ensures perfect balance, classic looks, and great visual appeal.

Machine Heads:
Wilkinson® WJ05 pin-lock locking machine heads with staggered string post heights provide correct string rake angle for snag free, smooth vibrato action and correct playing tension.

Nut:
43mm Graph Tech® self-lubricating nut, smooth and friction free.

Neck:
Light oil finished, hard rock Maple with classic ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy, and a luxurious, ‘played in’ feel.

Fingerboard:

Premium Indian Rosewood for durability, and outstanding tonal transfer with a 10” radius for a super comfortable, responsive, positive playing feel. 

Scale Length:
25.5" / 648mm.

Frets:
22 Medium profile hi-durability nickel silver frets ensure accuracy, comfort, and an overall feel.

Pickups:
A carefully curated set of Fret-King pickups enables the Corona Classic to deliver a phenomenal range of tones.

In the bridge position, the legendary Trev Wilkinson designed Fret-King Fifty-Five™ double coil pickup, built to an original ’55 recipe, delivers outstanding tone, replete with authority, authenticity, depth, clarity, and power.

Supplemented by two Fret-King Vintage Sixty™ single coils in the middle and neck position, the Corona™Classic has huge tonal versatility.

For maximum performance and the broadest tonal palette, the Corona Classic features a five way selector switch, master volume, master tone, and Fret-King’s unique Varicoil™ control, which progressively winds the Fifty-Five from blistering full throated double coil power, to a crisp, clear, classic vintage bridge single coil tone, making the Corona Classic able to cover the panoply of classic tones associated with the traditional three single coil double cut and its more aggressive HSS configuration.

Vibrato Bridge:
The Wilkinson® WV6 vibrato bridge featured on the Fret-King Corona Classic is a tour de force of design and technical detail. The ground steel base plate corner gives the WV6 authentic period looks, and the subtle “5+1”, 6 screw design ensures positive location and solid lateral and longitudinal stability.

Perpendicular bend, high grade steel saddles ensure spot on intonation, enhanced tonality, with ‘snap’. and classic vintage tone.

The stagger drilled steel block, with stepped forward 1st and 4th strings, working in concert with the string tree free headstock loaded with staggered post height locking tuners and Graph Tech® top nut ensure an outstanding return to zero pitch accuracy.

The easily adjusted ‘push-in’ Delrin®-bushed arm with variable arm height and tension provides the arm position and feel that suits your vibrato style.

Carry Bag:
The Corona Classic comes with a Fret-King luxury gig bag.
