Fender Kingfish Telecaster Deluxe with RW FB in Mississippi Night
Capture the Soul of Modern Blues
Christone “Kingfish” Ingram has spent the majority of his young life bringing the soul of classic-inspired blues straight into the 21st century. Appropriately, just like his music, his signature Fender Kingfish Telecaster Deluxe is the perfect blend of the past and present! This supercharged Tele’s alder body is loaded with an Adjusto-matic bridge and anchored tailpiece for enhanced tone and resonance — a perfect platform for the gritty grind produced by the dual Custom Kingfish humbuckers. Next, the roasted maple neck is carved into a robust “V” profile that’s sure to please vintage fanatics and players with larger hands. Lastly, if you’re looking to dish out some Kingfish-style blues ferocity of your own, the slab rosewood fingerboard’s medium-jumbo frets and flat 12-inch radius offer a slick surface for singing, vocal-like bluesy bends.
Chunky “V”-profile neck
When you’re powering through the big, multi-step bends so commonly found in Kingfish’s 6-string virtuosity, you need plenty of neck to hold on to! The Fender Kingfish Telecaster Deluxe’s “V” profile roasted maple neck offers an impressive amount of chunk to fill out your grip, and it’s sure to please both larger-handed players and guitarists looking to capture more of an old-school feel in their setup. Coupled with a gorgeous piece of slab rosewood on top, this neck’s 12-inch radius fingerboard and medium-jumbo frets are purpose built for the modern blues player, allowing for low action and huge bends without even a hint of choke out.
Enhance your intonation
More commonly found on another iconic single-cut electric, the 2-piece style Adjusto-matic bridge arms this Tele with raw sonic power and precision! The Adjusto-matic’s six individual saddles — as compared to a traditional Tele’s three — allows for exceptionally accurate intonation adjustment for each individual string. Plus, the anchored tailpiece provides enhanced string contact with the alder body, resulting in a strong foundation of resonance and sustain for you to build your tone on.
Custom Kingfish humbuckers
Two Custom Kingfish humbuckers supply the Kingfish Telecaster Deluxe with both pristine, full-range cleans and articulate, sustaining dirty tones. These humbuckers are specially voiced by Fender to excel in Kingfish’s bluesy rock style, with a blend of articulation and power that’s sure to please any fan of raunchy blues attitude. If you’re after a Tele-style guitar with a high-output sonic punch, this guitar’s Custom Kingfish humbuckers more than deliver!
