More about Elvis® Kingman™

Fender hails the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and transports you back to 1967 with the introduction of the Elvis Kingman acoustic guitar-a sharp looking, rich-sounding, hip-swaying evocation of the freewheeling Fender acoustic that Elvis Presley wielded with consummate cool in ’67 cinematic romp Clambake.

In addition to honoring the King, the Elvis Kingman dreadnought also recreates Fender’s famous mid-’60s “Wildwood” finish, in which living beech trees that provided the backs and sides of the unusual instruments were dyed in several elegantly striking colors before being harvested.

Highly distinctive features include Presley’s signature on the front of the Wildwood-style headstock, solid spruce top with scalloped X bracing for full and resonant tone, laminated Wildwood-style back and sides, Ivoroid neck and body binding, stylish dual checkerboard rosette, maple neck, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block position inlays and bone nut, Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with cream-colored pins and compensated bone saddle, chrome hardware and gloss neck and body finish.

I've had this great guitar a couple of weeks now and I have to I love it! It is way better than another Fender acoustic I purchased in the past. It has a nice full dreadnaught tone. And while you could spend a lot more, you'd be hard pressed to find better tone! Just one man's opinion.
As far as the look and feel of this really nice little gem, I played a Fender acoustic from the'70s a friend of mine had and this one's better! The action is nice and low. Perfect for bending the strings while playin' blues! And the craftsmanship is excellent!!! And it looks super cool!!! It's definitely a keeper! I'll have this one for a long, long time!!!

In the 70's I owned a Fender Telecaster. Two years ago I played a Fender Acoustic and wanted one ever since. When I tried the Elvis Presley I fell in love with the neck. I have never really loved playing an acoustic guitar except one, but the person would not sell it to me.( Fender Acoustic from the 1960's) . I do believe that the neck on the Elvis remake is from a Fender Jazzmaster Electric Guitar. The wood on the sides and back is incredible. But the feel and playability, the woodmanship are all spot on. The sound is very good as well, and the price is well ... very affordable. I love the guitar as much as I did my 1960's Fender Telecaster. The neck feels pretty close to what I remember about my Telecaster. I am very very happy with my purchase. A friend of mine was at my house and saw Elvis ... Thats what I call my guitar and she now owns one as well. You will not be disappointed,

Thanks BJ
