PREMIUM TONE WOODS
The Tom Petty Kingman guitar’s AA Sitka spruce top resonates delightfully
alongside warm, balanced genuine mahogany back and sides.
PICKUP SYSTEM WITH TOP-MOUNTED KNOBS
Petty tweaked his Fishman® VT-2 pickup/preamp system with the addition
of two top-mounted control knobs, a feature typically seen on ’60s-style acoustic guitars.
For retro-style resonance and a natural feel, the Tom Petty Kingman
comes lacquered with a thin nitrocellulose finish.
GENUINE STRATOCASTER® NECK
A ’62 Stratocaster headstock adorns a classic “C” shaped
neck, glossed with a “Midas gold” finish.
EXCLUSIVE SOUNDHOLE SIGNATURE
Petty gave his namesake instrument a true seal of approval, with a genuine
signature inside the soundbox alongside a handwritten serial number.
