The Fret King Corona GW has a somewhat atypical pickup combination with a P90 in the neck position, a throaty single coil in the middle, and a roaring Wilkinson 'Prizefighter' humbucker in the bridge position, the Geoff Whitehorn signature guitar, like the man himself covers an immense range of fundamental tones.

With a standard looking control layout, but more comprehensive than first meets the eye, the GW has master tone for the neck and middle pickups, and separate tone control for the bridge humbucker.

Add to this a 'push-push' switch on the neck/middle pickup tone control which switches the neck and bridge pickup together, as well as a second 'push-push' switch on the bridge pickup tone control which taps the 'Prizefighter' to single coil and it can be argued that if you can't find the sound you want with this guitar, then maybe it doesn't exist."

Geoff Whitehorn
