Play Guitar Like Elvis

Fender takes us back to the sixties with the Elvis Kingman acoustic guitar   09-Jan-12

Play Guitar Like Elvis


Fender Acoustics say that they are proudly hailing the King of Rock 'n' Roll and transporting players back to 1967 with the introduction of the Elvis Kingman acoustic guitar, which they describe as 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.

Yes, Bing influenced Dean a great deal but if you relaly want to see where Dino got his influence from, watch the Mills Brothers perform. He idolized the lead singer (his name escapes me at the moment.) At any rate, yes Chet isn't so much referenced in the rock and roll realm but his contributions to music, all genres, and guitar players alike is the stuff of legend. One of his best known quotes about his playing was well most guitar players know 1 or 2 chords. I just happen to know 3 or 4.
