KLOS makes affordable carbon fiber instruments. Their acoustic guitars and ukes are already on the market. While their electric bass (and electric guitar) is currently in development and due out later this year, they offer lefties of all of their instruments for no uncharge.

I signed up for future updates.

Looks promising! Their acoustics look cool and reasonably priced, especially the full-carbon models but I like the hybrids with graphite-reinforced wooden necks too.
I signed up too, looking forward to updates.

I might be interested in one with jazz pickups. Maybe even coil-split humbuckers.

I found a newsletter in my mailbox today with updates on the introduction of the KLOS solidbody guitars and basses. They look really interesting! The newsletter says they'll be released within the next two weeks, and will be on Kickstarter first. No word on lefties yet. Looks like they're using Fishman Fluence pickups!

I'm not a fan of the tiny headstock, it looks weird on such a tall and long instrument (especially with the long body horns). Very practical though.

Cool! Any indication what they will be charging for these?

Not really, the newsletter stated something like "between $699 and $1699 depending on the upgrades you choose" but didn't differentiate between the guitars and the basses. Not bad for an American-made instrument with a graphite neck either way though!

If they were to offer a bass with jazz pickups, I would be VERY interested. I would almost be willing to put a deposit down right now.

My guess is they are just going to do an active dual-humbucker.

What would be really awesome is if they were to sell the necks separately with a Fender bolt pattern now that Moses is out of the game. I would love to throw a graphite neck on a CV Jazz body.

I have a friend who is a Klos freak. He bought their travel guitar, and while he owns some incredible guitars, he's nuts about his Klos. They've made him an "ambassador". He's in his mid 70s, still physically active, and is excited like a teenager about guitars. Today, he sent me a message about the Klos electrics coming out. Awful headstock or not, I almost wish I could buy one just to help make him a Super Ambassador or whatever companies do these days. So guys, let me know if you buy a Klo--this guy would be tickled to death to hear that one of you bought one.

Saw this thread the other day, checked the link. That night I checked facebook, and of course there was an ad for KLOS. :)
