ca. 1938 – Gibson-Kalamazoo KG 3/4 Sport model flat top

Gibson-Kalamazoo KG 3/4 Sport model flat top, ca. 1938, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Sunburst top, mahogany back, sides and neck with Adirondack spruce top.  This little 3/4 guitar was a later addition to the Kalamazoo line, available from 1937-41. Built on the pattern of the 1920′s Gibson TG-1 Tenor guitar body, the Sport Model is a dainty girlie girl tight-waisted design.

The neck is very slim with a fairly sharp “V” profile. Overall length is 36 3/8″, 12 5/8″ wide at lower bout, and 3 7/8″ depth. Scale length is 23″. Width of new ebony nut is 1 9/16″ with action set at 3-2 and the proper string break across a new bone saddle. All original with some honest play wear yet crack free and in great condition…a true survivor!

Original 3/4 size GEIB inc. Challenge Chicago chipboard case in very good condition completes the package.
