(Annapolis, MD) July 25, 2009: Joseph S. Knaggs, formerly PRS’™ Director of R&D and Private Stock™ announced the launch of Joseph S. Knaggs Guitars (

For the past 25 years, Joe has been successfully designing, creating and building beautiful, award winning instruments for PRS Guitars™.

His creativity in designing and building great instruments has established Joe as one of the most respected designers and builders of high end acoustic and electric guitars, basses and mandolins. Joe recently left PRS Guitars™ to venture on his own and start JSK Guitars.

“I really look forward to utilizing my skills as an artist and a luthier to create themes, ideas and designs that are close to my heart. The fact that these concepts and products are for my own company in the future make it that much more exciting! Brandwolf Consulting will be the engine to channel and promote JSK Guitars. I am extremely confident that Peter Wolf’s expertise will assure and enhance the respect I have gained from industry peers and players. Having Peter at my side will allow me the freedom to focus on design and creation as I stated in a recent interview with Gitarre & Bass magazine, Germany.”

Peter Wolf said: “I’ve had the opportunity to witness and support Joe’s many unique skills from a close range in the past 13 years. He certainly is one of the best designers and builders of high-end instruments I’ve come across in my 35 years in this industry. I’m very excited and honored to be working with Joe again and to help him channel his creativity and talents in the future”.

Instruments with the JSK logo are proudly being designed and created on the East Coast of the United States of America and will be distributed World wide.
