Nils Lofgren, currently on tour with the E-Street Band, received his Knaggs Severn T2 in Golden Natural on Monday, April 9 and apparently fell in love with it at first sight, using the guitar the same night at their show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Severn will be touring with Nils on E-Street for the rest of the 2012 World Tour.
The instrument features a double cutaway Alder body with a Maple top capped in Mahogany, set figured Rock Maple neck, Cocobolo finger board with Dot inlays, proprietary Knaggs Tremolo and Wenge pick-guard with three OBL pick-ups.
Joseph Knaggs, Peter Wolf and the Knaggs team in Greensboro, Maryland, are carving a niche for themselves in the world of high-end guitar making in just a few short years. Some of the Artists currently using Knaggs instruments include Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, Michael Jackson), Stuart Fraser (Noiseworks, John Farnham), Angie Swan (Cirque du Soleil), Mick Hayes, Ben Miller and two time Latin Grammy nominee Pablo Olivares.
