Fret King Super Hybrid

Description (updated on 01/11/2013 at 08:17pm):

The forward-thinking, unique design of the Super-hybrid offers a massive spectrum of sounds and this beautiful solid body electric/acoustic hybrid design gives the player a range of tones from super saturated overdrive for scorching rock solos and speed driven shredding, to chunky rhythm chords, to the classic out of phase sounds, and all the way to delicate acoustic voices for picking, and strumming, all with the flick of a switch and the spin of a knob.

The split coil humbuckers and centre single coil pickups, supplemented by the piezo loaded Wilkinson ‘Acoustibridge’™ incorporated into a custom designed direct coupled bridge, provide truly inspiring tonal possibilities. Les Paul and Strat tones are all here plus the ability to have humbucker/single "out of phase" sounds and mix any of them with the acoustic pickups in the Acoustibridge.

With volume, tone and coil-tap controls for the magnetic pickups, and separate volume control (bottom tone control is piezo volume and push/push coil tap) and user configurable three-band active EQ for the piezo system, controllability is excellent, making the Super-hybrid one of the most useable and versatile guitars ever created.

Traditionally constructed from two pieces of American alder, centre-jointed, and with tight edge radii, the Super-hybrid has deeper cutaways and a sculpted neck/heel joint for easy access to the upper frets.

The fast, low profile 25 1/2" scale Canadian hard rock maple 24 fret neck and close grain rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets gives this impressive and extremely capable cross category workhorse
a great feel.

Bought new from candyapplered guitars on here a few weeks ago for €750 - never gigged.

Gigbag and deluxe padded Minotaur strap in black included.First offer of asking walks with this very versatile ax!!

Will do a deal for this and the Koch Startrooper in my ads if interested.

Deckard87 asked a question 29/09/2013 4:31 pm (6 months ago):
Would you have any interest in a Steinberger guitar/case? I still have the box, pretty much brand new. Message me for pics/details :)
PIK2ROK says 29/09/2013 6:14 pm (6 months ago):
@Deckard87: No thanks man, after dropping the price a little to try to get cash. This guitar hasn't left the house - only a couple of weeks old. Thanks for the offer though anf good luck with yours!
Deckard87 asked a question 29/09/2013 7:46 pm (6 months ago):

If my vintage Marshall sale goes through I'll be on to you love these guitars !!!
PIK2ROK says 13/10/2013 10:25 am (6 months ago):
Still up for grabs - Still open to offers despite the recent price drop!!!
ogankav asked a question 14/10/2013 12:03 pm (6 months ago):
Pm me your number will to buy today !!!!!!! For €400 !?! Is it in a case
PIK2ROK says 16/10/2013 8:25 pm (6 months ago):
Please note: this guitar is as mint as mint gets - never left the house. The pics are from the Fret king website as I have had trouble with my regular camera. Pics of the guitar on my bed or against the wall in my home would be redundant in any case as the guitar is as in the pics posted with ad. Would love to shift this ( and the Koch Startrooper in my ads ) to a deserving home. OPEN TO OFFERS!!!
PIK2ROK says 16/10/2013 8:29 pm (6 months ago):
Have made access available on back plate to the bridge block for string changing without removing the back plate. All else as in pics.
ogankav asked a question 16/10/2013 8:43 pm (6 months ago):
It worries me that in this day and age you can't get real photos up is all and after I've been stung before by something not being as it was in photos I'm afraid ill pass but if you get some pics up and I can have a look my €400 offer still stand if it is as it is in the photos ....sorry I don't mean to be an ass but I hope u see my point :-)
PIK2ROK says 16/10/2013 9:18 pm (6 months ago):
No I totally understand mate that you'd want to see actual photo's of the guitar before you travel to see it and I apologised in the PM I sent you earlier. The comment above was for general info not specifically for you. I really thought that this would fly with the file pics and a price of 500 but alas no. Had no prob shifting my Fret King Jerry Donahue,which was used, from a single file photo from the FK site so you never can tell. Day and age doesnt really have anything to do with the situation I found myself in last night with my camera, my phone and getting the pics, which I took, off my sons phone. I've been out of professional music for a while now and am working huge long shifts so time (and luck) were what was against me.As in the PM, all the best with what you do and again I totally understand your fears but the guitar is as advertised.
ogankav asked a question 16/10/2013 9:37 pm (6 months ago):
Ok I'll leave a week or so if it's still up ill give you a call as I've just taxed the van as I wasn't willing to take the risk lol
PIK2ROK says 19/10/2013 4:48 pm (6 months ago):
Just added some photo's of the real guitar!!!! They're not wonderful but show the access on the back plate and serial number.
ogankav asked a question 19/10/2013 9:40 pm (6 months ago):
That's better lol
darrene asked a question 01/11/2013 7:24 pm (5 months ago):
Interested in a trade for my ibanez js100? Mint condition with 2x humbuckers which coil tap into single coils.
PIK2ROK says 01/11/2013 8:14 pm (5 months ago):
@darrene: No thanks. Not looking for any kind of guitar - cash only I'm afraid. Thanks for the offer.
PIK2ROK says 01/11/2013 8:16 pm (5 months ago):
Dropping the price on this, for this weekend, to €400. Willing to share travel within reason!!

Just spotted that you don't want to trade. If you change your mind I have a lovely Mexican Strat.
