Description

The Eclat Standard is one of the electric guitar's most enduring styles, and, for many players, a benchmark.

Our decades of knowledge in tonewood selection and attention to detail in construction methods, electronics and pickups are all crucial in the creation of the Black Label Eclat Standard.

The solid, natural grain, maple cap, selected two-piece centre-jointed mahogany body, and mahogany neck with long-tenon neck joint all coalesce to ensure the foundations of a guitar with amazing sustain. The Eclat body features a rear contour and forearm scoop for an even more comfortable and fluid playing experience. The subtly extended cutaway allows enhanced upper fret access while maintaining the Eclat's purity of line and traditional elegance. Tonally, the Eclat is as authentic as you could ever hope for.

Legendary Fret-King WVC double coils (built to the original recipe created by Seth Lover, and gifted to Trev in the `80s) give the Eclat a voice which speaks with all the depth and clarity you'd expect from a signature twin double coil single cut guitar designed by Trev Wilkinson.

The Fret-King Vari-coil control rolls those spectacular WVCs all the way down to single coil for a range of tones which go from searing, saturated bridge double coil sustain, overloaded with delicious harmonics, all the way to tingling transparent single coil bridge tones. The Eclat Standard is truly one of the most versatile and useable guitars on the planet.

The Eclat Standard guitar is an original Fret-King® Black Label Series™ guitar created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Fret-King design team.
