This beautiful hand-made Knaggs Kenai Tier 1, Serial #3, was designed and hand crafted by Joe Knaggs and team.  As a very early Kenai, this one is mostly hand-made as the CNC patterns were still in development. It also has many appointments no longer available on Joe's guitars.

Kenai serial #3 is finished in a gorgeous faded “Winter Solstice ” with lightly exposed maple.  It is a “Private Stock” grade Tier 1 guitar with a carved Curly Maple front and back.  It has Body, headstock, and fingerboard curly maple purfling with green ripple BWB to enhance the beauty and elegance of this instrument.  The exceptionally figured and no longer available Brazilian rosewood fingerboard is inlayed with shell fingerbard inlays with a seahorse inlayed in the bookmatched Brazilian Rosewood headstock.  

2 Fralin Pure PAF pickups with a single coil switch give it sonic versatility unavailable on a Gibson Historic LP. A very special playing and sounding guitar and a favorite indeed.

Joe signed the electronics Wenge backplate. Weighs 8 lbs 10 oz. More information and pics available at Go to and see our new Galleries, and inventory.
