    Funny KNE Story

    As some of you guys may know I'm an advertising exec for a newspaper. So basically I sell advertising to retailers, businesses, etc. And my territory is Oxnard, CA which is where KNE Guitars is located coincidentally.

    One of my biggest accounts is a high-end finish wood supplier. So like real nice mahogany, oak, alder, maple, etc. They mostly sell to contractors, carpenters, etc. Very high quality stuff. I've worked with them for years. A great place, great people. When I walk in there, they always have the Boneyard (Sirius/XM) on, so they like good music too.

    So I'm in there the other day talking about some ads they're doing, and I see they have an unfinished guitar with KNE on the headstock hanging on the wall. I say, "You guys know Mitch?" They're like "Oh forever, he buys all his wood from us. We wanted a good guitar, but he always gives us his mistakes," he laughed. So I said, "I buy stuff from him, that's really funny." They're like, "Well it's our fucking wood man." Pretty funny coincidence.

    So if you're wondering if Mitch sells a quality product...the answer is yes, just beyond his own work. I know what those lumber guys sell, it's good shit, and they have a great reputation in our county, if you're thinking about buying from Mitch.

    This wasn't a plug for Mitch, just thought I'd share a funny story.

    I know a lot of guys here have bought their bodies for Franks from him, etc. Actually Jimi here recommended him to me once. He was basically in my own backyard and I never even knew it.

    Small world, Brett!
    And yes, Mitch makes a very affordable, quality product along with excellent customer service. I currently own five of his bodies and I definitely plan to get more!

    Yeah I gotta go see him today actually, he made a neck for my Warmoth just like the one I have on my Rasta. I actually don't like the one I got from Warmoth.
