Kingston Flying Wedge DLX

Regular price $699.00 Sale

Holy rocket ship! Ahh, the wonderment that is the late 1960s Japanese guitars. We just can’t get enough. This is just one of the coolest and most bizarre of all the Japanese guitars from the late 1960s, the Kingston Flying Wedge. At this time in Japanese guitar history, Kawai had purchased Teisco which lead to one of the coolest times for electric guitars. This new model has a 24 3/4" scale, available with STD stop tail or DLX tremolo. Bolt-on maple neck, zero fret, master volume and tone controls with individual pickup selector switches. For those of you in the know, Dan Auerbach has been playing out with one of these in his new project, The Arcs. Here is a video of the original!
