Kalamazoo / KG-11 / 1938 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
When you pick-up and play this super cool vintage Kalamazoo KG-11 guitar, you feel like Robert Johnson !
It's a light weight and responsive guitar with tons of mojo !
Although it’s not officially a Gibson, the KG-11 is undeniably Gibson-like. It for sure has the dusty dryness of a prewar Gibson. Other similarities are a pronounced headstock thickness taper, the fire stripe pickguard , the rectangular RW bridge and the darkly shaded top which are all company characteristics, and the three-on-a-plate tuners look the same as those found on Gibsons of the era.
Overall condition is very good
The guitar has had a neck reset so the action and playability are very good. The neck has a soft and comfortable V shape. Nut width is 45 mm.
