Customer Feedback: "I am absolutely thrilled. The original Kalamazoo guitars couldn't have been any better (or even as well made as this one. Only problem is, now I have to learn how to play the thing. Honestly, I am delighted!"
“I got mine (KG-11-F guitar) also and am very impressed. It sounds as great as it looks, just an incredible value for the cost. Thanks” – Steve K.
“Solid top sounds pretty good. The real KG-11’s have been broken in for 80-90 years. It has a “C” neck profile, finish is spotless, Grover type tuners.” - Bill S.
