I purchased a 1936 F hole Kalamazoo Oriole guitar in 1976 and have enjoyed it for 26 years. I was told that Kalamazoo was a pre gibson manufactored guitar. Just curious about it's current value

Kalamazoo Oriole Guitar f holes

: I bought a Kalamazoo Oriole Guitar with f holes at a yard sale today. Condition is 8 1/2 out of 10, maybe more. What would the year be, and its current value? Pictures can be provided.

:I was informed that Gibson made the "Oriole" under the Kalamazoo name from 1940-1942, also that the name "kalamazoo" was used to sell to Non-Gibson dealers.
Is your Oriole the blonde jazz model? If so, I've seen one going for $1500. over the internet.(specifically Japan)
Thanks,
Glenn
