1940 Kalamazoo KG14 – £1349
SOLD This is a very unusual example of a Kalamazoo KG14 – a natural finish which is quite a rare find, professionally re-lacquered so it feels like a modern guitar but sounds like a vintage guitar, with a Gibson logo on the headstock. Tonally it’s everything you’d hope for in one of the most important guitars in blues history, effortlessly recreating the famous Robert Johnson tone. Although it’s capable of playing any style, it’s most at home with fingerpicked blues – it has a honk to it’s voice that conjures up bar rooms of the 30’s and 40’s, if you shut your eyes your mind starts playing tricks. So, a seriously cool guitar, historically very important, with no cracks or repairs, and significantly more affordable than a Gibson L00 or L1. It comes in a non original hard case.
