John Jorgenson has earned a reputation as a world-class musician and virtuoso guitarist who has collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. Designed in conjunction with Trev Wilkinson the new Fret-King 'JJ' John Jorgenson Artist model is packed with a whole host of features. Made from American Alder, with a Canadian Maple neck matched to a Indian Rosewood fingerboard, a Wilkinson WTB bridge provides solid anchoring to the guitar, providing unparralled sustain and ultimate tone transfer due to its 3, self-intonating brass saddles and chrome pickup surround. A matched, calibrated set of Wilkinson WVT pickups are coupled with two auxiliary ‘ghost’ coils under the elegantly designed scratch plate, providing both Hum cancelling and classic single coil tones at the turn of a dial, thanks to the unique ‘Vari-coil’ control. Finished in an attractive Arcadian Green with contrasting Versailles Green back and sides, the ‘JJ’ can hold its own in every situation, and is an invaluable addition to any guitarists arsenal.

 

“It's an absolute treat to be able to collaborate on a guitar with Trev. I'm really excited about what we are coming up with and think other players will be too!”: John Jorgenson
