Kz Guitar Works KWG22, Fiesta 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 Kz Classic Humbucker. Kz Classic is a 50s style humbucker using alnico II magnet. It is rather an orthodox vintage type pickup but tweaked to be more responsive to the picking nuances.
The guitar has a five-way pickup selector switch and a tap switch. You can intuitively select a variety of different sounds.
