For rock & pop, other guitars are more suitable, i.e., Les Pauls, SGs, Fenders, PRS, etc; and for jazz and smooth music, the other hollow body guitars are preferable like the ES-335, L4, L5, PRS etc. I suspect that the Kalamazoo's flat top and back, may be the cause because the pickups are great, but I don't really know. My Gibson Les Paul and ES-446 are smoother than the Kalamazoo. I also unsuccessfully tried heavier string gauges to get a thicker sound. So I sold this pretty Midtown Kalamazoo. Thank you Amazon for making this guitar available for your customers.
When I discovered that it was not hollow as the description said, I started to send it back. I thought it would be a shame if I never plugged it in, so I did and was amazed by the versatility of sound with the 57 pickups and coil splitting. I could mimic my 68 Custom LP, or my Strat. Almost as cool as my Gretsch, but not quite, (personal preference). I have 10 guitars including 3 hollow bodies, and have 5 amps for various sounds. It seems to be a great guitar for solo picking or for jazz, but not at all for rhythm guitar. The tone seems muted with open chords, but jazz chords up the neck are as good or better then any I have. The drawback to that is that I'll have to have 2 guitars on stage for performing with the band. I may be able to work out the rhythm sound, but haven't yet. It came with no. 9 strings which, on the short scale, felt like playing on rubber bands. I changed to 11s and made it much easier for me. The setup was really good out of the box, but with larger strings, I had to lower the bridge a little so I could keep the low action. Very easy to play and the sustain is forever....
After trying it out, I decided to keep it. It adds a great deal of versatility to my playing and is very comfortable. It weighs just over 8 pounds which, even though the Gibson is smaller, it's the same weight as my Gretsch and a couple of other larger hollow bodies. Being smaller in size could be an asset to me though.
The case is beautiful but not the same Gibson quality as others I own. Very thin material and single stitching which will be easily damaged. The guitar fits very well and the deep white pile lining is a nice elegant touch.
I would think that Gibson could double the side thickness of the box for shipping. Mine came with the single sided cardboard box softened and smashed around the shape of the case. There was no damage at all to the case or Guitar, but there was hardly any protection left. Upon opening for the first time, I found buffing residue on the guitar and areas that were not rubbed out. With a little Gibson wax and a soft cloth, the true flawless finish was then visible. Wake up Gibson!! Sometimes, cutting costs can cost you more in future sales than you save....
My overall opinion is that it's a great Gibson guitar for the money. I would have rated it with 5 stars if it were not described and advertized as a hollow body. I would not have bought it if I had known, but then, I would have missed out on a great guitar.
I'm not sure what the previous poster who gave this 1-star was thinking, must just be a Gibson hater.
The sound is terrific! I play mainly Jazz and blues, and for both of those it is wonderful. The guitar has '57 classics, and can make any tone that an es-335 can make. It will be terrific for rock as well. Furthermore, you can split the coils and can get a very wide variety of tones by combining the pickups. It is an extremely versatile guitar.
Finally, I found the fit and finish of the guitar to be top notch. It is a beautiful guitar. I haven't found any flaws in it yet. The setup was unbelievable. It has the lowest and fastest action of any guitar I have ever played, and this was right out of the box. I have read that the strings are 10 gauge, and I may eventually put 11 gauge strings on it, but the stock strings sound great. As for the weight, it is on the heavy side. I didn't weigh it, but it feels similar to my Les Paul. Remember this is a semi hollowbody guitar, so it is not as light as as a fully hollowbody.
In sum, this is an excellent guitar, and an incredible deal for $1499. If you like short scale guitars, I would buy one now before they are all spoken for.
