Kalamazoo's top-of-the-line were the Orioles. That's what this is- the Hawaiian Oriole, but they never put the Oriole logo on them. Orioles in every other resect, though. 12-fret, wide nut - 17/8" and saddle spacing of 2 5/16". A finger stylist's "dream". Old spruce over Maple back & sides. Loud but full of tone. Ladder-braced but with a deep, deep bottom end. Fun to play. "Martin Ramos"- an owner from way-back, carved his name between the tuners- kinda cool. Bridge added for compensation. Action is a bit on the high-side but reset not needed. Very Cool and RARE guitar

All purchases are to be made in full before shipment of the instrument. PayPal is most desirable and the 3% fee is absorbed by the purchaser, unless other arrangements have been made. I do not accept payments via "friends & family" on PayPal. Plus the buyer forsakes all protection PayPall offers when doing so. Personal checks, Bank Cheques must clear my bank before shipment. It is sometimes possible to wire direct deposits which are safe and immediate.

Shipping is on an "on-case" basis. Usually adds will read "plus shipping" which means it is the buyer's responsibility to pay for shipping to the purchaser , and back to me if there is a return. It is to be discussed and a mutual agreement will dictate "who pays what".

There is aways a 72hr "approval period". The period begins the end-of-the-day 11:59 p.m. of the day the shipper indicates delivery. This should allow time for the instrument to "acclimate" to its new surroundings. Please make sure you do not open the packaged instrument when it arrives in winter UNTIL it has come up to room temperature. If opened to soon, lacquer checking may occur and perhaps worse.
