The last run of guitars out of the Kalamazoo factory for Gibson, the K.M. was designed for southern guitar dealers and was limited to 1500 guitars. Touted as the first 1959 reissue (despite being nothing like the 59), these guitars featured a mahogany body with maple cap (this one being unusual and having a nice flame, most were plain) and a three piece maple neck (of which this one is also unique and has a highly flamed maple neck). These were loaded with a set of double cream T-Top pickups, which dimarzio ultimately sued over. This guitar is in excellent condition for its age, only showing a few small dings and rashes. Frets are lower, as is common with the late 70s gibsons, but still have a good bit of life left. Neck is slim taper and very comfortable. Comes with a red interior chainsaw case.
