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 and steam bent lining. ’33s-’34s 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 the finger style country blues. I get the best of these for you pickers out there.

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 original lacquered Brazilian rosewood  bridge. 1 3/4″ at the nut.

Simply a great sounding guitar.

Recent neck reset and a few minor side and back cracks repaired which are no longer noticeable, all  impeccable work performed by Ross Teigen of Naples Florida. Perfect set up with intonation spot on …. 4-3 action and plenty of string break over the new bone saddle..

New Silver Creek Hard Case with the green plush lining.
