New Klein 457 “Blanca,” English Sycamore/Engelmann Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
The latest 457 from Klein & Kauffman has arrived—and it’s not one we’ll soon forget. The brand new “Blanca” 457 in English Sycamore and Engelmann Spruce is a force of nature. The lower bout measures in at 18 inches (even though the total weight is a slim 4lbs 7oz), and the expansive Engelmann top is tuned for instant response, even with a light touch. Played with flatpicks or fingertips, we could only find bright, balanced notes and easy-on-the-ears string separation, and Kauffman’s dialed in the setup on this Blanca to be nice and easy on the hands.
Here you’ll find Holly bindings, integrated Ivoroid nut, and Klein’s hallmark bridge with individual saddles. The sharp headstock angle maintains a consistent break angle for the strings for extra clarity and projection, and the whole package comes wrapped up in a custom Ameritage hardshell case that fits snug and secure.
