Old Kraftsman Acoustic Guitar

I have an Old Kraftsman acoustic that I inherited from the family. It has a number in the inside body: L1416 6858 P4. I am interested in finding out some info on it. I've cleaned it up with new strings and it sounds pretty doggone good for a old guitar. I appreciate any info you guys can give me about it. Thanks.

I just purchased an Old Kraftsman archtop electric with the two "Kelvinator" style pickups. Looking for a pickguard to fit if anybody has one they want to sell - or maybe a similar guitar that is damaged and needs to be repaired.

Old Kraftsman Guitars were the "house" guitar of the Speigel catalog company. They produced acoustics, thinlines, acoustic electrics and solid bodies. They were made in Chicago between the 1930s and 1960s mostly by Kay and Gibson. Good luck, Cool Guitar.

Re: old kraftsman guitars

I have most recently purchased an Old Kraftsman Acustic Gutiar, with F holes; but I do not know its age, nor anything else about the Old Kraftsman models. Can anyone provide any information on these guitars? I really like mine, and it actually keeps a tune quite well on a daily basis.

I also have an Old Kraftsman arch top (Hallow body Les Paul copy) electric with the F- holes. I was told buy a retailer that this model was made back in the late 50's
and carried an approx. value of $400.00
