Rare Vintage Student Guitar With Classic Appointments and Authentic 60‘s Mojo

The Kalamazoo KG-1 was Gibson’s entry into the affordable student guitar market. Prior to the Kalamazoo, Gibson offered only much more expensive student models. Originally retailing for under a hundred dollars in 1966, these rare vintage KG-1 beauties are worth much more today, especially when they are kept in such good condition!  

Featuring a slightly offset double cutaway body, with a Glacier White finish, a 24.75“ scale length, and a flat, comfortable Maple neck, perfect for small, student hands. With the shorter scale length, the string tension is relaxed, making them easier to hold down and bend.

In the electronics department, the Kalamazoo KG-1 features a Gibson single coil Melody Maker pickup with classic white volume and tone knobs. The hardware adds to the retro vibe with wraparound bridge/tailpiece that was common to Gibsons in the 1960‘s. This vintage beauty features a classic Gibson vibrola tremolo system with upgraded Kluson Deluxe tuners for tuning stability and accurate intonation.
