Here's my '34/35 Kalamazoo--kinda cool that the stripe is not parallel to the strum.

Anne, again, I am almost positive your Kalamazoo was made in 1935. I have never seen a rope binding on any guitar made by Gibson other than 1935. It is the same that is on my Recording King mando.

My point on the firestripe pickguards was that what Gibson uses these days does not come close to what the originals looked like. They are more of a tigerstripe is anything.

Your point wasn't lost on me. I've got two guitars with modern Gibson "firestripe" pickguards, and they don't look much like the originals. The new ones lack any subtlety at all. More like a warehouse fire than a campfire.

While we are on a firestripe kick, here is another one of mine from the 1930s. On this one the stripes go up and down.
