1934 Gibson Kalamazoo KG11
1934 Gibson-Kalamazoo model KG11. All there and all original and such a light finger picker. 2 piece seemingly seamless top with the fine radius. ’33-’34 were the lightest built of the KG11 series. Acknowledged by both players and collectors (and Tommy Emmanuel) as one of the best depression era finger picking guitars ever made!
To our way of thinking, the KG-11 was one of the best ideas Gibson ever had. We have never heard a bad sounding one yet. Loud and punchy and great for finger style country blues.
Adirondack top with the stunning, we call the Lloyd Loar small sunburst, mahogany back and sides with a nice light colored Brazilian rosewood divot free fretboard and lacquered Brazilian rosewood original bridge. 1 3/4″ at the nut. This sweetheart has some very light honest play wear and a few minor scratches but otherwise a very clean crack free example.
Simply a great sounding guitar.
Impeccable neck set by David Hatchard with pro set up and perfect intonation …. 4-3 action and plenty of string break over the new bone saddle with room to lower if you wish.
New Hard Case.
