Green Label Country Squire Semitone.

Supplied in a Hiscox FretKing Hard Case.

As the name suggests these guitars will appeal to country players, but no matter what kind of music you play, the ultra simple, single cutaway, bolt-on neck guitar that first appeared at the turn of the 1950’s lends itself to many diverse musical styles. 

The Country Squire range is Fret-King’s nod to the guitar that started it all!

Throughout the history of rock’n’roll, guitars like the Country Squire have been at the heart of so many musical genres; country, soul, blues, rock, jazz and more.

With the Fret-King Country Squire we have taken the liberty of respectfully raising the bar, with a 22-fret neck with medium jumbo frets, in either a maple/rosewood combination, or one-piece maple, both with a deliciously comfortable 60’s shallow ‘C’ profile. 

Both styles of neck utilise a 10” fingerboard radius to facilitate easier string bending, with a slinky, fast, 
playing action. 

By utilising an original spec small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood-to-metal, all contributing to keeping the vintage tone you would expect from this style of guitar.

Acoustic chambers in a double bound swamp ash body 
create a refined and resonant guitar, which retains the spirit of those hallmark 50’s sounds; spectacular looking, too.

In keeping with the Fret-King philosophy we’re out to give you that little bit more, where beauty is more than skin deep.

In stock mode, the neck mounted humbucker uses only the front coil, giving the selection of sounds expected from this iconic style of guitar; pulling up on the tone control, switches the neck pickup to full humbucking mode, essentially creating two guitars in one.

The fully intonatable Wilkinson® WT3 bridge rounds out a true professional instrument.

An exceptionally versatile ‘workhorse’ for country, blues or rock.
