KZ Guitar Works KWG22 3S11, Old Candy Apple Red

The new model KGW Bolt-On 22 from our new brand “KGW” is born! The guitar is fitted with three single-coil pickups which can be used individually or combined in seven different ways including two humbucking modes. The model is made in a Japanese factory, and each individual guitar is inspected and adjusted for the highest playability in our own shop here in Zushi.

The “KGW” is the sister brand of our Kz Guitar Works. Their basic parts like bodies and necks are made in a Japanese factory, but the final works like the crowning and the dressing of frets, smoothing the edges of the fingerboard, assembling parts and final adjustments are undertaken in our own shop in Zushi.

The design of KGW Bolt-On 22 is based on our Kz One, but we employed the bolt-on construction for the body-neck joint. The electric parts are assembled on a pickguard. It is fitted with a synchronized tremolo bridge.

The pickups are newly developed KGW-minis. They share the characteristic sound and low noise performance of our KGW Original pickups, but their responses are tuned to be more easily manageable for the guitarists of all different levels.

The guitar has a five-way pickup selector switch and a serial-parallel selector switch. You can intuitively select seven different sounds.
