Waterloo WF-14 (Kalamazoo KG-14 reproduction) #757

This WL-14 is a faithful reproduction of the pre-war Gibson built Kalamazoo KG-14. The back and sides are solid mahogany with a solid spruce top (ladder braced), the neck is mahogany with a steel "T" reinforcement bar. The guitar has a black finish with white accents (binding, pickguard). The lower bout width is 14 3/4" and the sccale length is 24 7/8". The nut width is 1 3/4" and the string spacing at the bridge is 2 3/8". The neck profile has a fairly pronounced "V" shape, very faithful to the pre-war profile of Gibson's Kalamazoo designs. The guitar is 4 years old and has had a strap button added to the heel. It has been very well cared for and is excellent-plus condition. The neck is very straight under tension and the top is flat. There is minimal fret wear. The action is set very low for fingerstyle, measuring 5/64" at the low E (12th fret) and 4/64" at the high E with saddle left, though you wouldn't want to lower the action any further. The guitar plays with no buzz and good intonation. If you were going to flat pick the guitar you might want to raise the action a bit, though it can be strummed with moderate attack with no buzz. Comes with the original hardshell case.
