Back in September, Fender released a limited edition Tom Petty Kingsman Acoustic guitar.
The guitar was built to his personal style and specs. With only 25 being made in the limited run, it's an outstanding guitar with a AA sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides completed in a black nitrocellulose finish.
Adorning the top is a gold pickguard, a chequerboard rosette, ivoroid binding, an indian rosewood bridge with bone pins and two knobs for volume and tone that control the Fishman VT-2 pickup/preamp system.
Interestingly, the neck isn't standard; it's a classic "C" shaped electric neck with a '62 Stratocaster headstock (two string trees) glossed with a "Midas gold" finish. With a 20 fret indian rosewood fretboard sporting a 10" radius (perfect for chord and single note playing), a natural gloss finish and vintage tuners.
The Fender site says the guitar is retailing for $5500. But I've already seen it going for as much as $10,500 at Reverb and bidding starts at $6500 on eBay. I can't seem to find any pictures of Tom Petty actually playing this guitar live. This is the fourth Tom Petty signature guitar; the Rickenbacker 660TP, the Gibson J200 Wildflowers model, the Martin HD-40 (12 string too) and now the Fender Kingsman.
