We are welcome new faces to become Kononykheen Guitars Official Artists!
You don't have to be a superstar and to tail huge following — we are looking for players with their own individual style. You don't have to be top-skills shredder — we prefer music rather than technique. We have frontmen, lead guitarists, singer-songwriters among Kononykheen Artists. Your location is not a problem: we have experience working with players from USA, Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia, Asia and Latin America.
How does Endorsement work
Guitar culture is being made online nowadays.
The idea of program is to create massive presence of Kononykheen guitars in socials. So people can explore #kononykheen hashtag and see Kononykheen guitars in hands of different cool guitar players from all over the world.
We ship guitar to you — you make content with it and post in your socials. That’s simple!
Your part is:
- post your original photos/videos with our guitars
- add "#kononykheen" hashtag for it
- offline activity like word of mouth is welcomed too!
From our side:
- Endorsers' pricelist + free shipment for our new guitar
- Featuring best of your material in our media (we have 200K+ people reach weekly)
- No strict obligations: you are free to use any other gear besides Kononykheen
- For players who work with us for a long time and endorsed by several Kononykheen models we create Personal Artist Profile at our website
Do you ship free guitars?
There are different types of endorsement: full and partial, you can check it at Guitar World article
We are working on partial sponsorship conditions only and don't work on full sponsorship — this is a part of our policy. So if you would like to get "free gear" — we respect your enthusiasm, but can't help you in this case.
Free guitar for one player means that we have to give reject for other 3 players to fit the promotional budget. Instead of spending promo budget for tons of ads and sponsoring star guitar players we prefer to bring Kononykheen closer to guitarheads all over the world! That’s the way we do advertisement.
About Kononykheen Guitars
We are independent guitar company working in Vladivostok, Russia, and have experience shipping worldwide. In our media you can see artists from USA, Europe, Japan, Australia, Latin America — from all over the world.
Each Kononykheen model goes in limited series and available only for short time. After we get model out of production we give public promise that we’ll not build it anymore. Never. So Kononykheen owners can be confident about their guitar rarity. And the only way to get retired Kononykheen model is to get it from original owner.
Around 10% of each series goes to our Endorsers. So number of endorsed players for each model is limited too. Instead of giving people ads we provide them with better conditions for our gear. Have we already told about it?
- Message us on Facebook or via contact form at the website
- We’ll ask you few questions and get understanding if you are meet our requirements
- Pick up your favorite model(s) and we are good to go!
For us this is not only a matter of «music business». It's about gathering coolest guitar players community!
