A weird, wonderful, moderately priced guitar

5 comments

Recently discovered this striking instrument by NK Guitars, an independent Chinese company. It's from their Club range which retail around £300 (plus import duties). It has a dual coil splitter operated by an outie tone control, two decent quality stock humbuckers and a unique tuning system operated by a tiny tuning 'crank' which is magnetically housed in a recess in the side of the bridge when not in use. Build quality is variable, so a set-up is necessary, but once that's done, it's a smart guitar.

Interesting the way it stands independent of a stand. Interesting balance of weight and moods. What’s its name? I’ll look it up.

It's an NK Club. It comes in a variety of colour combinations and usually without the acoustic hole.

I will say it has been a pig to get set up, but once it's right, it's a decent sounding guitar.

Hmmmm, variant of a Steinberger headless guitar ...

Good point

Up to a point, but the tuning system is unique and you only need ordinary single ball strings, whereas you need double ball strings for the Steinberger.

  • Here is a flyer for my 'AUDITORIA' album which features a shot of Wakefield's 'Regal' ABC Cinema from the 1950s. I performed on that stage as a schoolboy in my band 'The Cosmonauts' and later with 'Group 66' and 'The Gibson Trio,' (when my mother and father sat in the balcony to watch me play.) Back then it looked as grand and glamorous as it does in this photo' but now it's a sad ruin and looks as if demolition is on the cards. Such is life...
