Klira  "Wow" (1975) + Piezo

It is a very curious guitar that was the brand's top of the range. It is the only model I know of that is entirely made of rosewood, including the top.

They are two very high quality rosewood plies, separated by a maple ply.

Rosewood fingerboard. The bridge is also rosewood and has the two screws that come from the factory, like all Klira guitars, it is part of its aesthetics.

Mother-of-pearl inlays, one-piece metal tuners. Has adjustable trusrod working fine

It has a 000 body with cutaway, a 64.5 cm scale, and a fretboard with binding and mother-of-pearl blocks.

It also has a piezo system with equalizer installed that works well without noise or hum.

It has really remarkable bass sounds, it was built with great care and good materials, it is in very good condition and allows a perfect adjustment and tuning. X-braced!

Revised and adjusted!


Klira (Otto Johs. Klier GmbH) was a German stringed instrument maker, from 1887 to 1982. Starting from the classical violin family of instruments, the production range was expanded with acoustic and electric guitars around 1950:s.

Klira was founded in 1887 by Johannes Klier in Schönbach, today Luby u Chebu in the Czech Republic. His son Otto Josef Klier took over the company in 1914. After World War II, the Klier family left the company in 1946. The company was soon re-formed in the Franconian region of Bavaria, West Germany, in the Erlangen city. This coincides in time and place with the founding of the Framus company by Fred Wilfer, also from Schönbach. In 1950 the Klira company was moved more permanently to Bubenreuth.
