Konkoly Guitars is proud to introduce the Vintage Reproduction Series.
These guitars feature period correct elements that more accurately capture the look, feel, and tone of classic flat-top designs of the 1920's and'30's.

Other vintage details include cloth side and X brace reinforcement , maple end block reinforcement strip on mahogany block, full width end block, and vintage style brace profiles.
