About K-Line Guitars

Meet Chris Kroenlein

K-Line owner/founder Chris Kroenlein has been a guitar repair tech and a guitar builder since 1995. He was inspired to build great-playing instruments based on his passion for vintage guitars and his struggle as a player to find quality construction at a price affordable.

The K-Line Vibe

K-Line Guitars are classic style electric guitars crafted from hand selected woods, top-notch hardware, and K-Line hand wound pickups.
Each guitar starts life at the shop as a slab of wood or a neck blank. The wood is chosen for its resonance and moisture content. The wood is then shaped for its intended model.
K-Line uses only the finest hardware that has been proven to create the “K-Line Difference”, and the thinnest possible finish to complete the final K-Line Guitar.
Each K-Line guitar is hand built by Chris at his workshop in suburban St. Louis, Missouri.

K-Line Guitars are aesthetically accurate in their colors and classic style components. The body and hardware can be lightly distressed to resemble a gently aged closet classic, moderately distressed to capture the vibe of a stage-worn relic, or brand new non-aged.

CB&G & K-Line

We were looking for a line of strat-style and tele-style guitars that paid homage to the originals but had that special vintage vibe. K-Line nails it!
Their guitars play, feel, and sound like a vintage guitar but are built to tight modern specs. Their custom wound pickups are the icing on the cake.
All the vintage tone players want and more. You just have to put one of these guitars in your hands and it’s instant Yes. It’s just right.
We are honoured to be the exclusive Canadian dealer for K-Line.
