Fret-King Corona 'DBR' Danny Bryant
The Black Label Corona 'DBR' takes the exquisite features of Danny's Green Label guitars and morphs them into a professional quality package that is within the reach of all guitar players.
A giant of the modern blues world, Danny Bryant has evolved from teenage guitar prodigy into one of the most respected and admired players around, sharing stages with legends like Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker and Mick Taylor.
With a handful of masterful studio albums and a pair of monstrous recorded live shows behind him, Danny's upward career trajectory is gathering pace all the time – a fact to which Blues albums charts and wowed crowds all over Europe can well attest. A deeply emotional and a startlingly powerful player, Danny's been a Fret-King fanatic since his early days, with Trev Wilkinson personally making him a number of Green Label Coronas that have become his main stage guitars.
Now, Danny and Trev have worked together to give Danny his first ever artist instrument, the Fret-King Black Label Corona 'DBR'. The Black Label Corona 'DBR' takes the exquisite features of Danny's Green Label guitars and morphs them into a professional quality package that is within the reach of all guitar players. The 'DBR' features the double cutaway Corona body – made of three-piece American alder and finished in a resplendent Candy Apple Blue – coupled to a satin finish hard maple neck with 22 medium jumbo frets.
Completing the sophisticated looks are a mint green pickguard and aged white knobs alongside chrome hardware. The slanted neck double coil is, in fact, a pair of Fret-King single coils melded together, and the bridge-mounted Fret-King P90 is stacked and is routed through the unique Fret-King Vari-coil control, allowing them to be wound back to absolutely authentic single coil tones. Add this to the sweet sounding Fret-King WHS single coil in the middle, and you've got a guitar that can do absolute justice – and then some – to Danny's soaring solos, his brash blues licks and his raucous riffs... Salute the blues with the Fret-King Black Label Corona 'DBR'.
