  1. I have just acquired a ladder braced Kalamazoo acoustic which I believe dates back to the 1930's.I believe the shape indentifies it as a KG-11, as does the pick guard placement and shape. But I'm wondering if it has been re-necked at some point, or if I'm missing something on the ID process. It has 14 frets clear of the body and a "roof-top" peghead. The literature I have seen says the following: Regular acoustics from that period were indeed 14-fret guitars but had squared off peg heads Guitars set up for Hawaiian had the rooftop shaped pegheads but were 12-fret guitars. So what I have seems to be a hybrid unless I'm missing something. Any advice? I've attached a picture.. Thanks, Jack M. Frost
  2. Here's a picture, I was able to downsize it below the limit
