Christone “Kingfish” Ingram has teamed up with Fender for the brand new Kingfish Telecaster Deluxe. The telecaster comes loaded with custom Kingfish humbuckers, an Adjusto-Matic bridge, a “V”-shaped Roasted Maple neck with a 12″ Radius Slab Rosewood Fingerboard, and of course a custom Kingfish neckplate. Topped off with a Mississippi Night finish and this thing is a damn blues machine.
“For me, it is important for people to play other genres. One of my favorite features on the Tele are my signature pickups because they’re a solid option for players in all genres. Being a blues player is a beautiful thing, but it’s about more than that. I’ve always been into heavy tones from my influences like Gary Moore and various blues players like Freddie King. I hope this Tele inspires players of all genres to dig in and rock out.”
