Be the first to review Knaggs Chesapeake Severn Tier 2 'SSS' w/ Wooden Pickguard Faded Onyx - Pre-Owned. Write a review ›

This is a lovely example from Knaggs Guitars in America. Known for their different take on guitar finishes and colour schemes, this Tier 2 Severn is finished Faded Onyx, which has a grey-black flame maple body cap paired with a stained top which pairs with its gold hardware nicely. We love the wooden pickguard on this too!

The guitar is very resonant and loud acoustically, and vibrates slightly at the body when it is played.

It has been very well looked after by the previous owner and has no instances of major bangs or scrapes, with just some minor surface scratching to note. 

Comes with Knaggs Hard Case.

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.
