Kalamazoo by Gibson KG11 Sunburst 1937

During the Great Depression Gibson (like many other companies) weren't doing all that well. People had very little money and stood in line at soup kitchens, not thinking at all about buying a brand new Gibson guitar. The solution for Gibson was to produce some "cheaper " guitars under other names and as the Gibson HQ was in "Kalamazoo" Michigan, they used that name. The guitars built under the Kalamazoo name were nicely made guitars with good materials at a lower price. The Kalamazoo line was discontinued in 1942. 

This model KG-11 was built somewhere in the mid 1930s. It's in very good condition and has that true "old wood" sound to it with a warm low to mid end and a clear balanced high end. It also looks the part with it's sunburst finish and original firestripe pickguard. It's no secret that these shortened 00-size body guitars are favorites of old-time and blues players (as well as songwriters) because they really stand out for their size and have a wonderful look and vibe as well as a very useful tonality. The guitar is in very good condition with expected signs of use, the top has a repaired crack. It also has a new nut, new tuners, newer saddle and frets. Includes newer sturdy hardshell case.
