Vv: 1930s Gibson Kalamazoo K32 Archtop Guitar, Tkl Hsc, Perfect Player, Reduced

Before reading the description of this item, I urge you to first check out my Seller response. As you will see, my response is not only 100% positive--it's over-the-top giddy, a number noting not only the instrument's quality but also my integrity and knowledge and objectivity. Ineverdisappoint. (To find out why buyers again and again describe my sells as "best experience I've ever had on ," skip the description and see the WHAT I DO section at the end of the listing.)
********************
If this looks familiar, it is--listed it a couple weeks ago, got a gazillion looks but I decided I couldn't let it go, then realized I couldn't afford not to. It's been around the block but in as good a playing order as any of these you're likely to come across at an affordable price.
Very similar to one of the guitars in Robert Johnson's aresenal (same model, different year), mojomatic late 1930s (possibly WWII vintage, but I doubt it) Gibson Kalamazoo K32 archtop guitar in PERFECT PLAYING ORDER. You can pay a lot more for one of these in better cosmetic condition, but you'll never find one that plays better than this one.
Comes with a nice TKL hardshell case and new Grover Kluson-type tuners, which fit perfectly into original slots, so no modification to the instrument. (Original celluloid tuners, which work fine, are included. In fact, everything else--bridge, tailpiece, etc.--all original, but missing pickguard and endpin, both of which are easily and inexpensively replaceable.)
Note about shipping: I hate having to charge so much for shipping, but the case for this guitar is heavy (verywell made)and UPS insured to the West Coast will be $90. If you live East of the Mississippi and actual shipping costs are under $75, I will Paypal you a refund for the difference.
Rare find. Does not have the super dry/bluesy sound of the much more common K11 and K14 models--more refined, much more versatile. Also, a much less-clunky neck; basic Gibson C-sculpt. This, in fact, is one of the easiest players I've ever seen. Action is really low (a tad over 2mm on low E at 12th) and no buzzing; neck is dead straight and intonates well all the way up. Frets have been recently leveled and polished; super fast action.
Years ago, a couple surface top cracks were professionally fixed (very well--even refinished; feel completely smooth) and have been stable ever since. Structurally, this guitar's integrity is absolutely solid--NO ISSUES WHATEVER. Neck is dead straight and heel is tight to the body.
Design-wise this is basically a Gibson L-50: solid hand-carved spruce top, maple body, rosewood fretboard and adjustable bridge (The fretboard has oxidized to totally black and could pass for ebony if you didn't know how to read the grain. The body is laminated, while the L50's was solid.)
Sound-wise, however, it's a bit different. Notes are quicker, more responsive and not quite as sustained as those of an L50. Overtones are very fundamental, super symmetrical and, for lack of a way to put it, really really pretty. Finish has pretty much bonded with the wood on the molecular level, which may be why it sounds quite different from, say, a new Loar. (Also: WAY easier to play than any of the Loars.) My guess is you'll instantly fall in love with its voice or decide to save another thousand and go for a Gibson.
Also have some other great deals, including about the best sounding Epiphone Sheraton II I've ever heard (at a great price; I DO
For a little over a decade, I have searched out guitars of every conceivable sort, always looking for the unique instrument, especially those that are 1. great deals; and/or 2. possessed of real character. I take care to ensure that each guitar is set up and playable as is--new strings, action as described, NO ISSUES: If you get it from me, it's ready to play out of the box. My prices are always competitive, usually well below what a similar instrument comparably set up would sell for elsewhere. A few typical responses (some from repeat buyers):
Fantastic! As promised. Great communication. Great guitar. COMPLETELY SATISFIED! jonathanfrey
