Nut Width 1 11/16th (43 mm), Weight: 8 lbs., 3 Oz
Here is something that you don't see every day -- a 2013 Gibson Midtown Kalamazoo. The guitar is a Midtown Series tribute to the short-scale Byrdland and ES-350. These are very rare guitars, estimated to only have produced 300 for USA and 300 for Europe, so these are getting harder to find.
Basically, this guitar is Gibson's Byrdland Tribute, an effort to make this kind of guitar affordable to folks who don't have $5k - $10k laying around to buy this style of guitar. They simplified the design by building it with a flat top and a flat back, much a Les Paul Junior, and have control cavities instead of having to wire the guitar through the F-Holes, and it has a 15" lower bout, instead of the 17" on the Byrdland.
This guitar is in very good condition, with just a couple of dings on the back edge of the lower bout, and a couple of very minor scratches here and there.
