Telecaster - Fret-King - Jerry Donahue Artist Series Guitar
£450 Bristol

Sorry, this ad is no longer available.

Made by British guitar company Fret-King, this is the Jerry Donahue artist model.

A beautiful, well-made guitar with great tonal variation that provides many more sound options than a Fender tele.

It features Jerry’s trademark variations to the basic telecaster design, namely a Strat-style neck pickup, five-way switching and a pronounced “drop” at the headstock to facilitate behind-the-nut bends. It features a slightly offset waist and binding to the body.

This plays beautifully with the three classic sounds you would expect (albeit with the strat neck pickup instead of the less punchy tele one), plus two extra; a “humbucker-like” sound and an “out of phase” Strat sound.

Condition-wise is practically the same as it left the shop, including the Fret-King gigbag, which is as good as they get.
