1940 Kalamazoo KGN-12 Oriole Parlor Acoustic! Made to be the Deluxe model from Gibson’s budget line of instruments and only produced from 1940-1941. Incredible flamed maple back, birdseye maple sides, spruce top, mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Love the appointments on this one too! Tortoise binding and firestripe pickguard. L-00 body style, but ladder braced. This guitar is super resonant and particularly punchy for a ladder braced guitar.  Overall in very good vintage condition. All original and only one superficial side crack near the bottom of the guitar. The guitar plays great and there is some room to come down on the saddle. This one is a real workhorse! Comes with a newer chipboard case.
