This Steve Steven's Knaggs is used, but in good condition - however it should be known that this guitar did have a headstock break, but this was professionally repaired by Auden Guitars for us. They've done an excellent job, and the joint at the headstock has been cleanly finished over, though there is some sinkage in the lacquer. The signs of wear are some scraping on the top of the neck binding around the first frets, and some sinkage on the back.
Knaggs: Steve’s first Signature model since 1990, finished in Opaque Black with pink binding, features a Mahogany body with carved Maple top, set Mahogany neck with custom pink Morning Star inlays on Rosewood finger board, pink ray gun head stock inlay and Knaggs’ proprietary two-in-one bridge, combining a tune-o-matic and string holder into one unit, thus increasing harmonics and sustain only the player can feel. Two volume and tone controls drive specially designed Signature Bareknuckle pick-ups with engraved ray guns not available in any other guitar. Only 99 of these gems will be offered to the public in 2013. Each guitar comes with an exclusive Certificate outlining specs and serial-number and will be hand signed by Steve and team Knaggs. A black form fit case with pink lining completes this limited run offering.

We Welcome Part Exchange
We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.
How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.
You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
