Premium features include a solid spruce top with forward-shifted scalloped “X” bracing, solid mahogany back and sides, a full-body Sunburst finish and a black Stratocaster headstock. The other great Kingman features are still there too, including a convenient cutaway, maple neck with comfortable “C” profile, classic “Viking”-style bridge, and onboard Fishman electronics for superb amplified performance.
