Based on their successful Severn model, Knaggs Guitars announced the addition of the Severn X. Available pick-up configurations include SSS, HSS, HSH and HH versions and Knaggs’ proprietary Hinge Tremolo, driving increased string vibration into the center of the body thus creating additional sustain and response. The Severn X will be available in all 3 Tiers and features a 1.65” nut and taper, 14” finger board radius, EVO jumbo fret wire, modern Gotoh locking tuners and a 5-way super blade switch providing an array of additional sounds. Joe Knaggs said: “Due to requests from artists and customers for a more modern feel, we developed the Severn X. We will continue the classic 6- on-a-side guitar that the original Severn was based around, so we did not change the original. Instead we added the Severn X to offer an instrument with a different vibe”.
