The Fret-King® Country Squire™ is emblematic of the Fret-King ethos, a friendly and comfortable benchmark, blending the familiar with the contemporary, with innovative, progressive features. 

The Country Squire Classic, by name and nature, shouts out rock, country, power, and performance. The neck mounted Staggertwin™, and unique and exclusive Tapped-Fifty™ bridge pickup combined with Fret-King’s Varicoil, enable this outstandingly versatile guitar to speak with many voices.

Country Squire Classic Features

Body:
The two-piece centre jointed is constructed from selected American alder. The body, with its vintage edge radiuses casts a classic shadow. The unique reduced profile neck joint and subtly extended cutaway offers enhanced upper fret access, and the superb overall balance makes the Classic a pleasure to wear, A solid four bolt neck joint ensures the constructional and mechanical integrity which provides a platform for great sustain and the emblematic tonalities of the Country Squire Classic.

Headstock:
The signature Fret-King headstock ensures perfect balance, classic looks, and great visual appeal.

Machine Heads:
Wilkinson® WJ05 machine heads provide quick, accurate, stable tuning.

Nusmooth and friction free.

Neck:
Light oil finished, hard rock Maple with classic ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy, and a luxurious, ‘played in’ feel.

Fingerboard:
Separate premium hard rock Maple for durability, and outstanding tonal transfer with a 10” radius for a super comfortable, responsive, positive playing feel.

Scale Length:
25.5" / 648mm.

Frets:
22 Medium profile hi-durability nickel silver frets ensure accuracy, comfort, and an overall feel.

Pickups:
A carefully curated set of Fret-King pickups enables the Country Squire Classic to deliver phenomenal versatility.

The custom designed Staggertwin™ staggered pole piece double coil neck pickup, mounted in a genuine Bakelite pickguard with bevelled edges, and a Tapped-Fifty™ tappable overwound single coil bridge pickup, both created by Trev Wilkinson, mean the Classic is at home in the broadest possible range of musical styles.

For maximum performance and the broadest tonal palette, the Country Squire Classic features a three way selector switch on an ergonomically designed angled switch plate, master volume, master tone, and Fret-King’s unique Varicoil™ control, which progressively winds the neck mounted Staggertwin down to single coil, moving seamlessly from a full throated powertone, to a much more traditional neck single coil sound and in the bridge mounted Tapped-Fifty, brings in or out of play a series of additional winds which allow this impeccably voiced pickup to segue between a classic and very authentic ‘50’s tone to a more contemporary “Southern Hot” single cut voice. With the Varicoil rolled back, and switch in the middle position, you’ll find that oh so familiar, two single coil “quack”.

Control Functions:
• Ergonomic three-way lever switch selects neck, both, or bridge pickup.
• Master Volume.
• Tone Control: Outer control master tone, inner control, Varicoil progressively rolls neck mounted Staggertwin pickup from double to single coil and adds or subtracts additional winds in the Tapped-Fifty bridge pickup.

Bridge:
Enhancing all that tonality is the unique Wilkinson WTB bridge featuring a steel baseplate which surrounds and focusses the magnetic field of the Tapped-Fifty. Adjustable, pre-intonated barrel style natural brass saddles allow spot-on tuning, and two strings per saddle solidly anchor the saddles to the bridge baseplate ensuring the maximum mechanical coupling, so crucial to giving you all the power and tone you need.

Carry Bag:
The Country Squire Classic comes with a Fret-King luxury gig bag.

The Country Squire™ Classic is an original Fret-King® design created by the UK Fret-King® design team.

About us

Edinburgh Music centre is the expansion of Brass and Woodwind musical instrument restoration and repair est 2002.

Having studied orchestral instrument restoration in 1995 for 3 years and a further 4 years apprenticeship, I opened Brass and woodwind in a small workshop in south west Edinburgh.

We have grown and now have 3 workshops for brass woodwind and string instruments, along with chemical and ultrasonic cleaning room and a pro polishing room, I believe it to be the finest and best equipped musical instrument restoration workshop in the UK.

We have built a showroom for the huge range of instruments we have restored over the years and now offer a large selection of new and fully reconditioned instruments.

We want to thank everyone who has used the shop and workshops over the last 20 years for your continued and valued custom and invite you to visit Edinburgh Music centre for a very warm welcome and the best range musical instruments and accessories available.
