  • KNE guitar bodies, anybody have any experience?

    Thinking about ordering a body from KNE. They look good and are priced right, just don't know about the quality.

    Anybody have any experience with them?

    I have built 2 guitars with KNE bodys. both of mine were alder, one a hardtail and one with a strat trem cavity. both were very nice bordering on excellent. the neck pocket cavities were spot on, and i encountered no problems at all with either one.
    they are exactly as he describes them on his website, and if you find his myspace theres plenty of pictures of customers completed guitars as well.

      Good stuff, I like them. I have built a couple of guitars using their GGG bodies.

        I built one that I have since parted ways with, but I was thoroughly happy with the body I bought which was an alder SanD

          Cool, thanks.

          I'm going to order either a Solo or Dinkee in alder, bridge hum with a neck single and a Floyd route.

          Just not sure how I want to finish it. I've done 3 Carvin kits and just finished them with tung oil. I'd really like to try a candy apple finish but I'd hate to mess it up. Tung oil is pretty much idiot proof which is why I use it.

            I'll probably get a swamp ash Warren and finish it with oil/wax plus some stain.

              That would be a nice finish

                Thanks for the tip on KNe, I'll be ordering a body Monday.

                So who are you getting the neck from?
                I'm leaning towards Warmoth.

                  Hello St. Louis.

                  Yes I am getting the neck from Warmoth. Haven't decided on pups yet. I'm leaning towards a Duncan 59 for the bridge and a duckbucker for the neck.
