Description

The Fret-King Black Label Esprit V takes style and versatility to a new level. Familiar, but different to anything you will have seen, heard or played before, the Esprit V's distinctive reversed six-a-side in-line peghead, striking asymmetric body, chrome covered pickups and signature oversized pickguard add up to a statement of style with individuality and attitude to spare. The long tenon set-neck construction, combining a three-piece centre block agathis body with fast-playing maple neck, and a direct mount Tune-O-Matic bridge, creates a solid platform for you to build your Esprit V's tone. The twin double coil Esprit V is a classic rock layout, nodding towards tradition, then adding versatility. The reverse string tension and twin WHHBs give the Esprit V a huge range of tones. Master volume and master tone add to the dynamic and tonal range, while the Fret-King Vari-coil allows each of the pickups to be wound progressively back to single coil. The Vari-coil and traditional three way toggle switch allows permutations unavailable outside of Fret-King. Roll it all forward, and the high output bridge double coil will rage; switch to the neck pickup, back off the tone a little, roll the Vari-coil back a touch, and you could be listening to the sweetest neck mount P90 ever; switch to the middle, turn it all up, and get a massive wall of sound for the most amazing rhythm setting ever. Conventional? Somewhat. Quirky? Sure! Individual? Yep! For you? Absolutely... why not?
