Hand-crafted, vintage-spec S-style guitar that will inspire
I just had a chance to sit down with this one. I will say first, I am not really an "S" guitar kinda guy. I am a "T" guy. This one pushed me a little more into the idea that maybe an S style would work for me. First off, the oversize neck? Super Comfy, and the string spacing was really comfortable too. I played it through the Rivera Venus3 and it had spank for days. The nice thing here is that it didn't get brittle, it maintained some richness even in the bridge positions where some others would be peeling paint. K-Line, you might have swayed my opinions on S style guitars (at least for a little bit)
This Sonic Blue Springfield sings! A pleasure to play. I'm used to an average medium "C" neck carve but the bit of extra girth on this K-line instills confidence and sets it in a vintage spec catagory. It's a boutique S-Style guitar that'll make you question the major brands.
At the crossroads of blues, rock and country, the double-cutaway design is the standard by which most electric guitars are judged. Once believed to be futuristic in its design, the double cutaway is now instantly recognizable as a classic beauty.
Never one to settle for "the way it's always been done," K-Line master builder Chris Kroenlein sought to improve this double cutaway classic, The Springfield, by improving the neck pocket angle to allow for better intonation and tone. The end result is a better break angle and smoother operation of the tremolo system. With the addition of top notch electronics, The Springfield plays better than a vintage instrument, but still projects all the vintage vibe.
