[NAMM] Fender Artist Series Elvis Kingman
Fender Acoustics transports players back to 1967 with the introduction of the Elvis Kingman acoustic guitar.
According to Fender, this is a "sharp looking, rich-sounding, hip-swaying evocation of the freewheeling Fender acoustic that Elvis Presley wielded with consummate cool in ’67 cinematic romp Clambake."
The Elvis Kingman dreadnought also recreates Fender’s mid-’60s “Wildwood” finish, in which living beech trees that provided the backs and sides of the unusual instruments were dyed in several colors before being harvested.
Distinctive features include Presley’s signature on the front of the Wildwood-style headstock, solid spruce top with scalloped X-bracing, laminated Wildwood-style back and sides, Ivoroid neck and body binding, dual checkerboard rosette, maple neck, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block position inlays and bone nut, Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with cream-colored pins and compensated bone saddle, chrome hardware and gloss neck and body finish.
