Kaman Montana

I made this baritone guitar out of a used Kaman Montana bass. Kaman is the parent company of both Takamine and Ovation and this is a very nice Korean made guitar. It has one small ding on the top on the lower bout bass side toward the binding that is visible only in reflection and the volume slider is missing it's cap but still works just find. Other than that it is in great shape. I don't know a lot about this guitar and can find no specs online but it looks like it has a sold spruce top, mahogany back and sides and a mahogany neck along with a rosewood fingerboard. This guitar sounds great and has a nice low action and a sound port. I have never seen one of these before or even heard of them until I bought this one so it is likely to be the only one of its kind. I got it inexpensively so you can get a really great sounding guitar for a really low price. Sold - Thanks Loki!
