"This was my first ‘blues’ guitar bought in 1993, a 1938 or 39 Kalamazoo archtop, these guitars were made by the Gibson guitar company as a budget line during the depression, this particular one had some unusual features, it had a sunburst Gibson 16? archtop type body with Spruce top (with fancy checkered binding around the top like an L-10), flame maple back and sides with sunburst finish, and the fancy ‘pointed top/ Recording king’ headstock shape.
