Knaggs Guitars Keya Tier 2 in Koa


The Knaggs Influence Keya model is a double cutaway with a carved top and back, three on a side headstock, 24 frets and a 24.75″ scale. Designed and built by famed builder Joe Knaggs, the Keya features a Mahogany setneck design, a Mahogany body and carved Maple top, two humbuckers and Knaggs’ proprietary Influence hard-tail designed to allow for increased string vibration and sustain. Like all Knaggs models, the Keya is available in two tiers and a variety of color options.

This Keya features a Koa finish divided by purfling of Turquoise stone. Joe Knaggs has come up with a method to split guitar tops on solid body electrics into sections by inserting channels and dividing tops, allowing them to be stained in different finishes and color schemes.
