Fret King Super Hybrid
Description (last update: 3 years ago)
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.
