Gear You Gotta Try #12

Knaggs Seven X Guitar – Prices start at $3456

Based on their successful Severn model, Knaggs Guitars announced the addition of the Severn X. Available pick-up configurations include SSS, HSS, HSH and HH versions and Knaggs’ proprietary Hinge Tremolo, driving increased string vibration into the center of the body thus creating additional sustain and response. The Severn X will be available in all 3 Tiers and features a 1.65” nut and taper, 14” finger board radius, EVO jumbo fret wire, modern Gotoh locking tuners and a 5-way super blade switch providing an array of additional sounds. Joe Knaggs said: “Due to requests from artists and customers for a more modern feel, we developed the Severn X. We will continue the classic 6- on-a-side guitar that the original Severn was based around, so we did not change the original. Instead, we added the Severn X to offer an instrument with a different vibe”. For More information visit http://knaggsguitars.com/knaggs-guitars-introduce-severn

Two independent power amps and custom-designed speakers deliver the genuine clean sound of the larger JC amps, while the trademark Dimensional Space Chorus effect fills the room with immersive 3D sound. The amp also includes a great-sounding reverb that operates in true stereo for rich, expansive tone.

The JC-22’s rear panel is outfitted with lots of connectivity. The effects loop works with mono or stereo devices and offers selectable serial or parallel operation. Line Out jacks provides a convenient mono or stereo feed to a mixing board or recorder, while the headphones jack is great for quiet practice.
