With a back catalogue that includes Michael Jackson, Billy Idol and the theme song from Top Gun, Steve Stevens is one of the worlds most recognisable players. When you are at the top of the game you get your pick of the best gear, and Stevens preferred guitars of choice are his signature line from Knaggs. This is something a little different though, this is the Severn XF designed to Steve's specs.
Founded back in 2009 by long time PRS designer Joe Knaggs, Knaggs Guitars experienced team of world class luthiers craft guitars of the very highest standard.
The Severn XF is an innovative and flawlessly designed solid body that delivers massively on tone and playability. With a lush Alder/ Maple body, finished in a stunning semi-gloss Black and stained Red, the XF has a punchy tone, is perfectly balanced and super resonant. This incredible guitar benefits from Joe Knaggs signature purfling method, by dividing the top into sections it allows different stains and finishes to be applied to the same piece of wood.
The Maple neck features an Ebony fingerboard with purple dot inlays and the signature RayGun at the 12th; with great access right up the neck this guitar is at home playing a wide range of styles. Loaded with a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge, this guitar has great tuning stability and a really nice playing action. With a duo of Bareknuckle SSC pickups, which are based on the popular Mule model and feature Alnico IV magnets, these PAF inspired pups were selected for their supreme versatility.
The attention to detail and innovation on display here is equal to the very best on the market, Joe Knaggs is one of the worlds premier master luthiers and with guitars as majestic as this who are we to argue!
