Kononykheen Breed Forty

USD 799 + shipping

Have you ever experienced how tasteful mahogany neck & body are when they combined with 25.5 scale? Deep ductile tone but with the bright attack — that`s the core of Kononykheen Breed Forty

Its versatile solidbody can reach everything from metal riffs to heavy blues. Thanks to the bridge humbucker it’s the next level: like a jazz guitar with V8 engine. Geared up with the bridge humbucker and sweeten with the tone of a neck P-90. Both pickups match the tonewood perfectly, summed up into sleek and vibrant tone.

3-piece fine mahogany body is joined with a mahogany neck by 4 bolts – providing a tight wood-to-wood contact, without glue or any other external material. This Wenge fretboard, while resembling properties of ebony, has a slightly warmer tone. And Kononykheen Speedplay neck has proven itself as a player-friendly and effortless "fingers highway" without any speed limits.

And, as any other Kononykheen model, Breed Forty goes in limited series and thus available only for limited period. Once the series limit is reached we give public promise to not build Breed Forty anymore. Never. So you'll be confident about the fact you own rare and unique guitar.
