Fret-King Black Label Esprit Bass ~ Metallic Deep Purple
The Fret-King Esprit models have returned to their roots.
First introduced in the late nineties, the Fret-King Esprit was the first guitar and bass design in decades to revive the stepped body front, popularised in the �60s.�As changes were made to the Esprit, this design feature was phased out, but now the stepped front is back and looking better than ever.�
Exhibiting partially-recessed control knobs, making for a smooth front profile and a cleaner appearance, the new Esprit is a classic, user-friendly, professional level instrument.The Fret-King Black Label Esprit I bass, with its balanced, asymmetric stepped body front�styling, distinctive 4-in-line peghead and signature pickguard, is familiar, radical, and comfortable on the eye.
Fitted with Fret-King's distinctive WJM double coil, many pickups in one, this Wilkinson masterpiece is a profound and powerful pickup which will hold its own in every musical style. Routed through a traditional volume control, passive tone control, and the Fret-King Vari-coil, which progressively winds the WJM back to the paired pole piece element, the WJM takes you on a journey from jazz on to punchy slaps and pops, vintage to vicious, passive to an almost active like depth, definition and power.
The�Esprit I�is an original Fret-King� Black Label Series� bass�created by Trev Wilkinson and the UK Fret-King design team.
