Description

The reason we’re listing this gorgeous lightweight Chena as a Tier 2/3 is cause in the early stages of this Knaggs model, the top wood (as on this one) on some of the models were of a tier level 2 or even 1 and is certainly superior to any top wood Tier 3 Chenas that were produced after that. As a collector, this guitar was hardly played at all and never taken out of a smoke free humidified home. It truly is right at “mint” condition.

Chena has a solid carved top and is hollow except for a small block beneath the combined bridge-stop bar. Pickups are Seymour Duncan 59’s (see description below). This amazing custom instrument is priced right to sell. It will please even the most discriminating collector-player.

From the Duncan web site:

The ’59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because it’s so versatile. It’s designed in the spirit of the original P.A.F. humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but we’ve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles.

The ’59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound that’s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn’t a genre that the ’59 can’t work within. It pairs nicely with the ’59 bridge.

The ’59 Model neck pickup is wound on Seymour’s Leesona 102 pickup winding machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI in the 1950s. It comes standard with a long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire and no logo.
