Description

What player hasn't longed for one of those great old Gibson 335s. Well once you play this Kingston Fusion you'll never want a Gibson again. The craftsmenship and tone of this guitar are extraordinary. Much more responsive than a factory build semi-hollow guitar and the woods are top notch. We love the rich brown stain on this stunning solid Quilted Maple carved top. The Bigsby Tremolo and custom Fralin Pickups give it versatility and style. The playability and tone are superb, as you would expect from a luthier with over 30 years of experience. This is the real deal, a custom, handmade semi-hollow guitar perfect for blues, jazz and of course Fusion. From Brian Kingston "The Fusion is my take on this venerable guitar. To find more tone I've replaced the plywood top, back and sides of the "335" with solid select tone woods. The Fusions mahagony neck, sides, kerfing, centerblock and fully carved back form a homogenous unit that really warms the tone and feeds the sustain. When the bite of the fully carved premium quilted or European curly maple top is coupled with the clarity, articulation and punch of the custom order Lindy Fralin humbuckers and added to the equation; the result is that the Fusion is capable of almost pure acoustic sounds right up thru those big, fat, creamy Duane Allman sounds."

This is a great example of what independent Luthiers offer to us players. A higher level of tone, craftsmenship and playability. This guitar may not look much different than the guitars of yesterday, but play it and you'll immediately understand how different it truly is. From the gorgeous Quilted Maple top, to the clear, articulate voice, this is a special guitar from BCKingston!
 
I used to have a 1963 Gibson ES-335 with a Bigsby vibrato, so this guitar brings back some memories. It's the perfect instrument for crossing over from blues to jazz to rock. Very versatile and fun to play and much higher quality craftsmenship.
