Knaggs Guitars, the boutique Maryland maker of high-end, investment grade stringed musical instruments has added a new Chesapeake Series model to its line-up. Based on their Severn model, the Severn Trembuck comes with 2 humbuckers controlled by a 3-way blade switch with push-pull option, allowing for coil tapping and providing both high-gain humbucking as well as classic single coil sounds with a 25.5" scale.
Knaggs' proprietary Chesapeake Tremolo has been redesigned to allow for increased string vibration and sustain and back loading of electronics. Standard features are set Rock Maple necks with Rosewood or Maple fret boards and Alder/Sapele laminated bodies with or without Maple tops. Like all Knaggs models, the Severn Trembuck is available in 3 Tiers and a variety of color options.
Knaggs Guitars have been carving a niche for themselves in the world of high-end guitar making in just a few short years. Artists currently using Knaggs instruments include Grammy-Award winner Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, Michael Jackson, Kings of Chaos) Nils Lofgren (E-Street Band), Stuart Fraser (Noiseworks/John Farnham), Doug Rappoport (Edgar Winter Band) and two time Latin Grammy nominee Pablo Olivares.

Interesting, its a first heard for me and I'm from the area. Not too far from Paul Reed Smith's factory. Both are fairly close to Annapolis. The land of pleasant living, Under Armor, and custom made guitars - oh yeah, and steamed crabs from the Chesapeake!
