Looking for the perfect balance between that classic, sought-after tone and a sleek, modern touch? This Knaggs Tier 3 Chena doesn't play like any ordinary instrument -- it's an extension of the musician. Joe Knaggs honed his craft for two decades working with the Private Stock Department of Paul Reed Smith. It's no surprise that this masterbuilt guitar is a notch above the rest. The familiar warmth of the Mahogany body pairs flawlessly with the snappy Maple Top, a top-notch tonal combination that translates to a powerful voice that demands attention and easily cuts through the mix. A sleek, modern single cutaway design outfitted with Duncan humbuckers makes for a sound that's articulate, punchy, and perfect in every way... and for additional retro appeal, this one features a gorgeous, vintage sparkle blue finish. Once you pickup this beauty, you'll never look back.
If you don't know Joe Knaggs, he was head of R & D at PRS for a number of years as well as the head of the Private Stock department. He had his hand in almost every Private Stock ever built and as such, his name and signature is often found on the COAs and headstocks of those amazing guitars. This will be very familiar for any PRS Custom fans out there, and given these are hand built one at a time, the attention to detail is second to none. These guitars maintain all the Vintage tones you need, handle modern gain like you expect and sustain for days thanks to the set neck design.
