The Fender King Vintage Acoustic is a harkening back to the 1960s, with Leo Fender at the helm of the company designing radical new guitars influenced by pop, surf, and counter cultures of the time.
This design originated in the early 1960s as the Fender King dreadnought. Originally produced between 1963-1966, the King was one in a collection of acoustics designed in collaboration with Germany's Roger Rossmeisl, a luthier who also designed electric guitars for Rickenbacker. Today, the King is available as a new offering from Fender once again, made with modern sustainable materials but still dripping with vintage Cali vibe.
The Fender King Vintage features a body comprised of a solid Spruce top and Ovangkol back and sides. It's Okoume neck sports a Modern "V" profile, Ovangkol fingerboard with 20 frets and 16" radius, Pearloid block inlays, and period-correct Tilt-Back Vintage King peghead with Fender Vintage Style tuners. The bridge on the King Vintage is styled after Fender's original Viking design.
Electronics are equipped on the King Vintage, and for this Fender chose the Fishman Sonitone Plus system. The Sonitone Plus features an undersaddle piezo pickup and internal body transducer. Controls for volume and blend between the two pickups are located inside the body at the top of the sound hole.
The Fender King Vintage also ships in a vintage-style Fender hardshell case.
A new offering in the Fender California series of acoustics, the King Vintage is a great choice for the working player looking for a left-of-center yet still traditional guitar shape, made of reliable materials and having a comfortable playing experience - all at an attainable price point.
