FRET KING FBSMBK Supermatic Self-Tuning Electric Guitar Black Gloss finish

The Fret-King Super-matic self-tuning guitar, is the first ever guitar to feature the truly outstanding and innovative Wilkinson ATD HT440 self-tuning hard tail guitar bridge.

Built with all the hallmark Fret-King style and attributes, the Super-Matic is a very cool looking beast, cut from matched, two piece centre jointed American Alder, using heritage styling cues to create a subtly nuanced classic double cut body, with cosmetics redolent of the shared history with which we are all so familiar.

The 25 1/5in scale length, 24 fret, Hard Rock Maple neck, with it’s classic ‘Shallow C’ profile, matched to a premium, close grain Indian Rosewood fingerboard with a 10in radius, finished off with an immaculate fret job, using single cut, hand crowned medium jumbo nickel silver frets assures precision, comfort and provides a playing experience which can only be described as luxurious.

The Super-matic features a Hum-single-Hum pickup configuration, with Wilkinson WHHBZ33 offset pole piece ‘Zebra’ humbuckers, wound to a very authentic recipe and a Wilkinson WHSM ‘vintage voiced’ single coil middle pickup.

The combination of carefully voiced and balanced pickups, and the signature Wilkinson `Vari-coil’ control, (which allows either of the humbuckers to be progressively wound down to single coil), creates an instrument with an exceptionally versatile palette of sounds capable of literally any musical style.

Available in either Black or Original Classic Burst, complete with rectangular hardshell case, the ATD loaded Fret-King Super-matic sets a whole new benchmark and opens up a host of new musical possibilities to expand any player’s performance horizons, and creativity.

The Wilkinson ATD self-tuning bridge, which has been under development by Trev and his team at ‘Auto Tuning Developments’ over many years, is a super low profile, real time electro-mechanical device utilising ultra hi-tech micro gearboxes, designed to retrofit unobtrusively in to a standard Strat vibrato bridge rout, (or similar), with a micro hex pickup, controls small enough not to notice, and an intuitive one touch button controlling all the functions and features of this truly incredible device.

Invisibly incorporating the microprocessor control circuitry, the ATD bridge allows the player, with just one touch of the function button to automatically tune the Super-Matic to standard E-tuning.

Tuning status is confirmed in the hi-visibility display, designed to be viewed whilst playing, and overall tuning is assured with the built in chromatic tuner.

Press the function button again, strum, and let the ATD change the guitars tuning from standard E to open G, or change to DADGAD, then to open D - all in the space of just a few seconds, or recalibrate to five additional `user created` tuning presets in just a few seconds more.

A unique offset body, asymmetric horns and sloping heel give the Exige superb neutral balance and excellent upper fret access, whilst the signature Fret-King forearm scoop and ‘T-Cut’ make this guitar both practical and comfortable. Two ‘original voicing’ Wilkinson designed WVC double coil medium-high output pickups with solid nickel silver covers give you perfectly defined hi-gain rock and metal, to-die-for blues and crunch, and yet can stay crystal clear for those all-important clean tones. A simple, ergonomic and effective control layout of three way toggle switch, common volume control perfectly placed for ‘violining’, common tone control and Fret-King’s unique Vari-coil™, which progressively rolls whichever of the pickups is in use from twin coil to single coil, opening up a whole host of tones not normally associated with a guitar with this pickup configuration. Tonally, the EXIGE Standard lets you move seamlessly from bridge single coil, to neck double coil, to neck and bridge single coil split, to bridge double coil, to twin double coil, for massive versatility and the ultimate in high output heaven. Dare to be different. Try the Exige and believe.
