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. For 2018 we see a super limited run of just 11 guitars featuring a custom Black Rhino inlay drawn by Joe Knaggs. This is the only one in Europe and we can't wait to get our hands on it!
The Severn X is an innovative and flawlessly designed solid body that delivers massively on tone and playability. With a lush Alder/Curly Maple body, finished in a stunning CharcoalBurst, the X 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 Curly Maple neck and fingerboard features the Black Rhino inlay across the 11th-13th frets and an old school 6 in a line headstock. Its smooth, beautifully finished and balanced, with great access right up the neck this guitar is at home playing a wide range of styles. With locking tuners and a Knaggs Chesapeake tremolo bridge, this guitar has great tuning stability and offers a playing experience unlike any other.
With a duo of Seymour Duncan ATX-K single coils and a TB4 at the bridge, you get a smooth, articulate tone. The ATX-Ks are based on the Duncan Antiquity series and voiced specifically for Knaggs, they give you a little more midrange focus than a standard single coil. With unbelievable clarity and harmonic content this is a great pickup selection.
The attention to detail and innovation on display here is equal to the very best on the market, Joe Knaggs is one of the world's premier master luthiers and with guitars as majestic as this who are we to argue!
