Marshall replied to Edward Sparks's discussion New song "Ice Around My Heart" by Edward Sparks in the group Songwriting Review
"Nice. The only line that bothers me in anyway is: "Yeah love may have taken a toll all it’s own" That one just seems a little contrived or awkward. But, that's a small thing. Everything else seems to be dead on."

Marshall replied to Ian Goodsman's discussion L R Baggs - repair suggestions in the group Gibson Acoustic Owners
"Tape will come off again. It always does. (Maybe the carpet tape works better). But I end up putting a dab of superglue with the tape and apply pressure for a few seconds."

Look what I found:
1937 Kalamazoo KTG-11
Check this out a ways down the page at:
FON 223. The KG-11 and KTG-11 were the base-model Kalamazoo offerings during the late 1930's. Both the 6 string KG-11 and and 4 string KTG-11 featured the slightly squashed looking 17.5" body, and basic trim. Like all of Gibson's Kalamazoo branded guitars the KTG-11 is ladder-braced and without truss-rod, but nicely built. This tenor features a mahogany and spruce body with bound and sunburst-finished top, unbound back and bound soundhole. It is 100% original including bridge and end pins, ebony nut and bone saddle, firestripe pickguard, Brazilian rosewood lacquered bridge, and friction banjo tuners. Not much for ornamentation, the Kalamazoo has a silk-screened logo and firestripe pickguard, but not much else to fancy it up. All that being said, I'd rather have tone than looks, and this guitar has lots of it. Big and open, with a very surprising bass response and trebles in balance, we have set the guitar up in a low E-B-F#-C# tuning with heavier strings, and it sings. Great action and frets, this guitar is ready to play and need no further restoration. No cracks or issues other than one minor brace repair. Set-up in shop.
With original (beat) chip-board case

I have been attracted to Kalamazoo's ever since reading aobut them in a Gibson book I have and finding out ath that is was John Fogerty is referring to in the song "Down on the Corner."
