Description

The Fret-King Elise™ is one of our most elegant styles. Ergonomic, classic lines, familiar, yet forward looking.

The thin-line semi acoustic guitar is one of the great workhorses of the electric player’s arsenal. The Fret-King Elise Custom with vintage style vibrato, is the latest in a long line of Elise variants. With its offset, chambered mahogany body, carved, tuned maple cap, the Elise is light, strong, and resonant. Easy to wear and fast and fluid to play, it’s loaded with a pair of Trev’s most iconic pickup designs, the Fret-King Fifty-Five™, a first-generation pickup masterpiece. The Elise just oozes class and with the Varicoil™, and master tone with push/push phase reversal, has the inherent versatility to adapt itself to the warm, mellow horn like lead lines of the thirties, or supernatural sounds from the sixties, straight-ahead full-bore rock, tilt its hat at classic country tone and then, with the flick of a switch a spin of a couple of knobs and a killer vibrato, you’ll be unleashing the Werewolf within!

Elise Custom Vintage Vibrato Features

Body:
The two-piece centre jointed, chambered semi-acoustic premium mahogany body features a tuned, violin carved maple cap, mahogany extended tenon neck joint, and premium mahogany neck, which all couple outstandingly well to create an airy lightness and ensure the strength and constructional integrity which provides the platform for the singing tone, blooming sustain and classic, authentic tonalities of the Elise Custom.

The unique reduced profile neck joint and subtly extended cutaway offers enhanced upper fret access, and the superb overall balance makes the Elise Custom a pleasure to wear.

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

Machine Heads:
Wilkinson WJ04 machine heads provide quick, accurate, stable tuning.

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

Neck:
Gloss finished, body colour constructed from premium mahogany 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 Elise Custom to deliver phenomenal versatility.

The custom designed Fret-King Fifty-Five™ double coil pickups, created by Trev Wilkinson using a truly authentic recipe, give the Elise Custom the inherent character and tonal versatility its semi-acoustic style suggests, whilst hinting at there being many other different personas waiting to burst forth.

Those other personas manifest themselves from within an almost impossibly broad tonal palette. The Elise Custom features a three-way selector switch, master volume, master tone control with latching push/push out of phase switch, and Fret-King’s unique Varicoil™ control which progressively winds the Fifty-Five pickups from full throated ‘powertone’, to sparkling single coil settings. The extraordinary range of tones this arrangement gives underscores the Fret-King ‘Versatility’ philosophy and makes the Elise Custom, a true journeyman player’s guitar.

Vintage style Vibrato:
Enhancing that tonality is a direct mounted Wilkinson GBR roller bridge, which anchors the bridge solidly to the body ensuring the all-important transfer of maximum string energy to the body and pickups. The stylish and authentic Fret-King vintage style vibrato tailpiece allows for subtle, shimmering pitch manipulation, with Wilkinson’s trademark return-to-pitch accuracy and stability.

Carry Bag:
The Elise Custom comes with a Fret-King luxury gig bag.
