Details

Dale Fairbanks specializes in the vintage designs of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, and is known for crafting guitars that sound as if they have been found for 100 years. The Fairbanks SJ Kalamazoo Gal certainly lives up to the hype. 

Sporting a red spruce top and Brazilian rosewood back and sides, this SJ replica is extremely lightweight and responsive, with plenty of volume and sustain on tap. The thin nitrocellulose finish lets the guitar breathe and enhances its overall harmonic content. 

Paired with its ivoroid and black line rosette and purfling, ivoroid body binding, Honduran mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard and bridge, and parallelogram fretboard inlays, the Fairbanks SJ Kalamazoo Gal is perfect for those who wish to have an accurate, high-quality recreation of a golden era Southern Jumbo, with vintage tone as well modern reliability and playability.
