2014 Knaggs Kenai Tier 2 Custom Order Figured Mahogany + Gold Hardware

Joe Knaggs has been building great guitars for decades. In the mid ’80s he started his luthier career in the finish room at Paul Reed Smith Guitars & worked his way up to director of R&D and Private Stock. He wound up designing the McCarty Archtop and Hollowbody, the Mira and the Starla— guitars that were at once futuristic and retro. In 2009, Knaggs went his own way to create his own guitar company.

David Allen P-51 Mustang pickups are a 59 PAF vintage inspired humbucker set. Alnico IV magnets give the P-51’s tight bass response, fat extended mids, clean glassy highs and a great bite. They have a very open sound with good string to string definition. They respond equally well to distortion & clean amp settings. Neck pickup measures 7.48K and bridge 8.8K.
