1963 Kalamazoo KG-2


One of the worst guitars ever made, this Fender Mustang™ knock-off was constructed with a MDF body fitted with second-line parts. The whole thing reeked of cheap. I bought it at B-Sharp Music* in NE Minneapolis for about $60 in 1973. All of its proportions seemed a little off; no traces of finesse at all.

It ended up in the trash, although I think I might still have the improperly intonated bridge.

Here’s a video that is a good example of this clunker’s tone:

Kalamazoo made some nice acoustic guitars. Too bad they didn't carry that on to this electric.
