Fret-King Black Label Elise 'GG' Gordon Giltrap Signature Overview by GAK:

Gordon is a contemporary of great players like Bert Jansch, John Renbourne, Mike Oldfield, and John Etheridge. Throughout a career as a guitarist and composer which has crossed and combined styles and genres, spanned five decades, and over forty albums, Gordon has cooperated with the glitterati of the guitar world. He describes the results of his collaboration with Trev Wilkinson:

"I love playing both acoustic and electric guitar, and my Black Label Elise GG model brings together the best of both acoustic and electric worlds. I loved the whole process of working with Trev Wilkinson to design a guitar for my needs, and it looks like we've given birth to a classic and innovative design which will find favour with discerning players looking for the ultimate semi-acoustic hybrid guitar."

The Elise GG is capable of articulating Gordon's unique mix of acoustic and electric playing with an incredible tonal palette. The neck-mounted P90 and vintage voiced bridge humbucker provide traditional semi-acoustic guitar voicings, but with additional breadth, complexity and versatility. The direct mounted tune-o-matic 'Acoustibridge' piezo system faithfully reproduces the sonorous pure acoustic tones of the tuned, chambered, mahogany body. All pickups are able to be used separately, or blended in almost limitless combinations to create a spectacular range of sounds from '50s rock, to sparkling acoustic, using traditional passive tone controls, and an active three-band EQ.
