Available in a 2-pickup 22-fret (6-22) GraphTech Resomax hardtail (above) and a 24 fret (6-24) TremKing version (below), the Rubicon delivers simplicity in design with player-friendly enhancements. The Kingston Rubicon’s asymmetric neck, Buzz Feiten tuning system, ergonomic body contours, and sustain-enhancing bridges systems deliver maximum performance at a reasonable price. The 6-22 is available in Dr. Brown’s Burst (satin) and Trans Cherry (gloss). The 6-24 is available in Dr. Brown’s Burst (satin) and Solid Black (satin).
