Vintage 1940′s Kalamazoo Oriole KGN-32 w. Kalamazoo was a budget-friendly brand produced by Gibson in the late 1930′s through the early 1940′s, intended to be a less expensive option for those suffering the consequences of the great depression. One of the finest guitars they produced was the Kalamazoo Oriole KGN-32. the KGN-32 (Kalamazoo Guitar Natural) has some extra features by the way of a stripe down the fretboard (often seen on Gibson-made Cromwell-branded instruments) flamed maple back and also binding around the fretboard and pickguard. So I suppose this could be called a “KGN-32+” or something like that.With an arched solid spruce top with f-holes, solid curly maple sides, arched curly maple back, mahogany neck with “dove wing” headstock, 19-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, adjustable rosewood bridge, trapeze tailpiece, tortoise plastic body binding, and 3-on-a-plate open-gear Kluson. This guitar has an incredible tone that is extrovert and present though still very warm, silky smooth and subtle. Comes with the original softcase.
