Kona Guitars KE55N KE55 Series Electric Guitar with Spalted Spruce body

Kona guitars are very nice guitars at a very nice price. They have every style of electric guitar from the traditional stat body style to something very similar to the Les Paul. They even have a Flying V style guitar. Newer, more modern body styles are present as well and all body styles come in a wide range of beautiful finishes that really compliment the guitar. With such a huge selection to choose from you are sure to find the perfect guitar to fit your needs. These guitars don’t just look nice, they sound and play as good as guitars costing at least twice as much. The guitars have a great feeling neck that is fun and easy to play. The action is set really nice right off the shelf, there’s no work involved in pressing down the strings, you can and want to play these guitars for hours.  A quick search for reviews on Kona Guitars will show almost unanimous positive reviews really backs me up when I say that these guitars are worth taking a look at. Kona Guitars are worth some serious consideration.

Many of the guitars feature Klusen fully enclosed precision tuners for accurate stable tuning,  Rosewood fretboards. The bodies of the guitars are made of Basswood, Alder, or Mahogany and many feature a Mahogany neck. The bridge can be a string through the body fixed Tune-o-matic bridge, or Floyd Rose Licensed tremolo system, Alnico bobbin pickups, two way truss rod for a better more accurate neck adjustment, and the list goes on.


In the acoustic section you find everything you can hope for. Dreadnought, Cutaway, Thin Body Cutaway, Classical, 12 String, and Folk, are all represented in the Kona family. Kona acoustic guitars are made with a Spruce top and a Rosewood fretboard and bridge. Most come with a traditional finish but some models add colors like black, blue, and pink. These Kona acoustic guitars play really well and have a full rich sound that fills up the room without putting a pounding on your finger tips. You can even get left handed versions of some models.

Kona guitars also make bass guitars. They have an acoustic electric bass made with a solid Spruce top, a Mahogany back and sides, a Rosewood bridge and fretboard, an active pick-up, 4-band EQ with presence boost w/battery check, a gloss finish, and 4 ply body binding, for a nice sturdy great sounding bass. It sounds as good unplugged as it does plugged in, and when you do plug it in it does not cause a lot of feedback like some acoustic electric basses that I have seen. There is also a really beautiful 5 string bass made with a Walnut & Maple body, a neck through design, a Rosewood fingerboard, a natural oil finish, 2 Wilkinson active humbucker pickups,  2 volume controls, 2 tone controls, and 1 blend control. This bass looks awesome and plays with a nice warm clear tone. Kona guitars also feature 2 styles of  a Double Cutaway Jazz Style Electric Bass. One style has only one single coil pick-up by the bridge, and one style has 1 single coil pick-up by the bridge and another closer to the neck for a little more control over your tone.

Overall these guitars make great beginner instruments and are inexpensive and high quality enough to be worth adding to any collection. If you do I won’t be surprised to hear that you play it more than some of your more expensive guitars.
