I'm cleaning house and need to let go of some guitars I don't use anymore. I'm wondering if there's any interest on the Forum for this guitar.

On the chopping block is a used, 1939 Kalamazoo archtop (I believe it is all original), with a hardshell Guardian case. It is an amazing sounding instrument whose voice has really opened up from me consistently gigging with it for the past four years. It was my #1 for acoustic rhythm playing until I bought an older Epiphone, in which I sadly can't keep both. It does have some wear for pushing 80+ years, but nothing suspect.

I'm asking $1000 plus shipping but am open to offers from people on this Forum. I'd also be willing to drive a reasonable distance to prevent shipping.

PM with any questions.

thanks,
Michael

Brian, I sent you an email this morning. Hopefully you got it?

Thanks Bill! It wasn't anything pristine, or out of the ordinary-- just enough to hopefully demonstrate the sound and ability of this beautiful instrument.
