Great Acoustic made of Massive Mahagony (Back & Sides), Spruce Top (Adirondack), Mahagony Neck and Rosweood Fretboard. Also included is a B-Band A3T Preamp and a Lightweight Tric Case.
Made by a Team of experienced Guitarbuilders in the USA. Lead by Joe Knaggs who used to be the head of PRS‘ Private Stock Dept.
HANDMADE IN CANADA
„The Kipawa is an able player, more than capable of laying down rhythm beds or delicate finger- and flat-picked styles.“
„It’s a collaboration,“ says Peter Wolf. „It started with the desire to have a guitar made in North America, not the Far East.“
And it’s an interesting partnership. Godin, we’re informed, is the largest manufacturer of acoustic guitars in North America; its brands include Seagull and Simon & Patrick. The union is reflected in the Quebec Series and Kipawa names. The latter, like all Knaggs designs, comes from a river – this one is in Western Quebec.
Effortlessly stylish, this mini-jumbo is constructed to Knaggs‘ design from all solid woods. Initial impressions are very good. The lightly arched ‚pressure tested‘ spruce top is clean, but far from bland looking, with a simple rosette and thick black purfling, and its edged top and back with ivoroid cream-coloured binding.
