Default Kalamazoo Guitars & Truss Rod

I know the Kalamazoo guitars made by Gibson don't have an adjustable truss Rod. Does anyone know if the necks have a metal rod in them?

Before Martin had "adjustable" truss rods they still installed metal rods in the necks. I am wondering if that is the same for the Kalamazoo guitars.

With Gibson, nothing is etched in stone, but the ones I have worked on do not have truss rods of any kind. That said, the only ones I have worked on were KG-11's and KG-14's from the 1930's. Bill
