The Chena is a Single cutaway electric acoustic, carved top three on a side, short scale guitar. The body style is shaped similar to the Kenai, but a little larger.
This early hand-made Tier 1 “Hickory Burst” Chena S/N 14 has Joe’s finest "incredible" Big leaf maple top and south American Mahogany back. The '59' carve on this 12" radiused ebony fingerboard makes playability a dream. The Ebony headstock and mahogany neck are incredible with the Engraved gold Waverly tuning pegs. Abalone shell inlayed "top hat" style knobs, the Knaggs designed one piece Tune-O-Matic bridge and Gold Fralin Pure PAFs round out the bottom. The sound is incredible. The best surprise was the smoothness of the bass. The guitar growls when you want it to, but is soft, sweet, and has a very smooth character to it. From a Larry Carlton Bluesy-ness, to Martin Taylor jazz, to your favorite Les Paul artist, this guitar does it all. Get an early Knaggs hand-made build T1 at a T2 price.
