    Knaggs Kenai - Aged Scotch

    This is a Beautiful guitar in Excellent condition.
    Just a couple of small dings, and a little bit of minor surface scratches on the back control cavity cover, and a spot right next to the control cavity (see 4th picture down) - otherwise the guitar is super clean.

    The fretboard has been lovingly cared for with Fret Doctor (great stuff, I used it on all my guitars a couple of times a year - https://beafifer.com/boredoctor.htm)

    * Note - my camera is picking up just a little more light amber/yellow in the top than there actually is.

    The Kenai neck is similar to a PRS wide fat in size. Beefy but not huge, a proper ‘59 if you will (way smaller than my R7 and less shoulder than my 99 R9 FWIW). Frets are SS and a tad taller than PRS wire (a good thing in my view) but not wide. Very comfy.

    My Kenai has become my #1. It’s the “better mousetrap” LP I’d been looking for. This is a great deal and I’d be all over it if I didn’t already have one.

    I'm pretty darn surprised this guitar is still here.
    I've owned my fair share of killer boutique guitars, and this quite honestly rivals most costing twice as much.
    No disappointments - built quality, playability, & tone are second to none IMHO.

    Can't believe no one has bought this. IMHO these are better than the best PRS guitars you can buy. A great price for a killer guitar
