A factory second guitar is merely cosmetically flawed. It is just as durable and beautiful sounding as a brand new guitar, however, throughout the manufacturing process, it has an imperfection that does not allow us to sell it as a perfect guitar. These imperfections are minor, ranging from a small scratch, a wave in the carbon fiber weave, a slight ding in the soundboard or neck, etc. Most people can’t even tell that there is an imperfection, but because we pay such careful attention to each detail, we are aware of them.
TL;DR - Sounds great, plays great, travels great. If you’ve been considering a purchase, just do it! When the guitar arrived, I took a pretty good look over everything to find any marks that made it B-Stock. I only found one very small blemish, so these guys aren't lying when they say most folks won't notice what makes it B-stock. There was however, one issue with playability - the frets weren't polished on arrival. Long story short, I called the folks at Klos and explained the issue. They had me send the guitar back (free of charge), fixed it up, and had it back in my hands just over a week later. The guitar plays great, and is now one of my favorites! Here's some highlights on the specifics of the instrument: Acoustically, the sound of the instrument is notably bright, with the mid-range somewhat scooped vs. a wooden acoustic. There is a decent amount of bass presence as well. I find the tonal character of the carbon fiber to be quite pleasant overall. It is surprisingly loud for its size, and I've found the loudness is "optimized" when picking/strumming between the sound hole and bridge. Definitely loud enough to play and sing along around the campfire. Plugged in, the Fishman pickup sounds great! The brightness and bass are still there, but the mid-range is also more pronounced. Coupled with a PA, this guitar definitely has the ability to be gigged in a small venue (coffee shop/bar), and I certainly plan on doing so with mine. Playability is great. Neck came out of the box with perfect relief, frets leveled well, and now that they're polished, are smooth as butter. The frets aren't crowned as much as I am used to, but plays great nonetheless. Action height is good as well. Detaching and re-attaching the neck doesn’t have any appreciable effect on action height either. The tuning heads are pretty small and close together, but shouldn't be problematic unless you have huge hands. The full scale length makes string tension similar to other full size guitars as well. The neck is a bit heavier than the body, so I have noticed that there is some neck drop. The guitar is so light though, that the neck drop doesn't really affect how long I can play or how comfortable it is to practice. When standing, the friction of the strap alone counteracts most of it. I’ve also done a “road test” of the guitar’s travel capabilities. After bringing it with me on a flight, I can say it’s great! Once the neck is detached, the guitar and gig bag fit into an easily carried package that weighs just a few pounds. Getting through TSA check wasn’t an issue at all. Once aboard the plane, I was happy to find the guitar is small enough to fit underneath the seat! The carbon fiber stiffening rods in the neck are also doing their job, and have kept the neck straight in fairly different climates/temperatures. In summary, the guitar is great. If you’ve been considering a purchase or are on the fence, it’s time to pull the trigger.
Was a little worried about the B-Stock, but the guitar is nearly perfect. There's a very small scratch, really just a scuff, on the front and a ripple inside that is mostly covered by the sticker. Sounds great. The pickup works well and it sounds great on my SPARK amp. Can't wait for travel to return to normal - it will be a companion.
I bought my first Klos travel guitar around 18 months ago. I loved it, but sold it to a friend who was retiring and needed a small guitar for his RV adventures. I did miss that little guitar. Recently, I saw an opportunity to buy a B-stock fully loaded Deluxe version, and couldn't pass it up. The guitar arrived in the ingenious small packing box. Got everything set up and immediately spent the next hour or so running it through its paces. What a great guitar, super fun to play and it sounds great, too. Somehow this one sounds even fuller and louder than my first Klos. Plus, I really love the new updated gig bag, it's such an improvement over the old one. And since this was the Deluxe model, I got the strap, capo, rain cover, reinforcing rods, etc. for a super price. Sounds great plugged in as well, can't wait to play it at some small shows (assuming we ever start doing those again!). I won't be parting with this one, this will be my 'travel buddy' for many years to come.
I bought this guitar as an impulse purchase when it went on sale. I absolutely love the tone! It’s different than wood, but very smooth. The guitar also resonates just as well, if not better, than my solid-top Martin. The volume is great for the size, and great for an apartment guitar!
The guitar came in a neat little box. It was easy to assemble and once I got the strings straightened out, it sounds great and stays in tune. Its resonance is impressive especially knowing that it’s made of carbon fiber- you’d never think it wasn’t wood. I bought the travel guitar too and it’s just as rich sounding as some wood full-size guitars.
Carbon fiber is an infusion of the most durable fibers and the strongest resin, commonly used in the aerospace industry. This creates a lighter, more durable instrument, with more volume than a similarly sized wooden counterpart.
KLOS carbon fiber is never post-processed—our guitars are naturally beautiful without sanding, polishing or painting. This is the way they come out of the press. There will often be small marks, crease lines, or fiber distortions from this process, true hallmarks of a genuine carbon fiber guitar.
