KD / Silvia / 2014 / Oil / Guitar For Sale
This is the Silvia guitar model that I created in 2014 with SN #001. At first glance, it looks ordinary - but actually nothing could be further from the truth. I crafted this model to achieve something that I hadn’t come across in Tele Style guitars before - convenience and comfort during playing, a maximum natural and rich sound and a durability that would last for years tocome.
No CNC wasutilized in the building of this guitar - it is 100% handcrafted.
I was able to achieve this when I changed the design, adding comfort cuts. Modifying the neck pocket, I added an extra 22nd fret and created a 5-point stainless steel bridge. The bridge is completely made out of stainless steel, as are the saddles and the screws - which are made to last a lifetime.
The wooden materials that I used are local and of exceptionally high quality. They grow in Bulgaria and I dried them myself. The neck is made of Flame Maple, which is the ultimate tone wood; Ash has an excellent quality in sound due to its density.
All of the materials used in the making of Silvia were seasoned for seven years, with the exception of the Indian Rosewood used on the fingerboard. I purchased it from a licensed Spanish tonewood dealer.
The guitar is brand new. I’ve used it only for demonstrations in recordings and at exhibitions. The guitar is under the serial number #001 and comes with a KD branded Hiscox hard case and a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY.
