With stand out looks, the Ventura is typical of Trev Wilkinson’s fine eye for detail and building purpose into design. 21st century edginess and poised angularity blends with gracious curves to create a mode which echoes iconic musical eras and genres.
A premium American alder body supplies the Ventura’s tonal bedrock, and the 22-fret maple neck with rosewood fingerboard supplies a smooth, certain taking part in response with choke-free bends.
Rock cast Wilkinson E-Z Lok tuners are complemented by a Wilkinson WVP ‘wave’ vanguard fulcrum vibrato with cast chrome steel saddles, stagger-drilled steel block and ultra-smooth action, all contributing to spectacular total tuning stability. Ventura factors in most performance and prime excitement. A ‘total firepower’ pickup choice of a tone-stuffed Fret-King PAF-taste WHHB bridge double coil and two biting Fret-King WDG Focusfield® mini double coils within the neck and middle positions provides an ideal vary of tones.
As ever with Fret-King, player regulate is paramount, and so Trev’s cutting edge Vari-coil rotary regulate incrementally morphs the double coils via to single coil format, for max versatility additional evidence of his ‘player priority’ design way to guitar building.
How many guitars glance this cool, and can take a player from searing slashing and shredding via twang central, to sweet and mellow, from arena stage to intimate venue? Handiest the Fret-King Black Label Ventura.
Working are living, on stage or within the studio, the Black Label Ventura captures, then transcends, the classic tones of the ones time honoured ‘bolt-neck’ classics.
