Fender® Introduces Elvis Kingman™ Acoustic Guitar

January 05, 2012

You can own a guitar just like the one Elvis played in the ’67 movie “Clambake” and used for promotional pictures publicizing the movie “Double Trouble.” Fender® Acoustics proudly presents the Elvis® Kingman™ acoustic guitar— featuring Fender’s famous mid-’60s “Wildwood” finish with elegantly striking color and detail.

Highly distinctive features include Presley’s signature on the front of the Wildwood-style headstock, solid spruce top with scalloped X-bracing for full and resonant tone, laminated Wildwood-style back and sides, Ivoroid neck and body binding, stylish dual checkerboard rosette, maple neck, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block position inlays and bone nut, Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with cream-colored pins and compensated bone saddle, chrome hardware and gloss neck and body finish.

The guitar will be available for purchase in late January on-site at Graceland® and at

The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest World Championship winner will receive one of these beautiful guitars as part of his prize.
