kay kraft

I bought a Kay Kraft guitar at an estate sale. It's kind of a spanish looking style guitar. It's brown with white trim. Does anyone know how I can find out how old it is? If so, please email me. Thanks.

Re: kay kraft

These are a very nice guitar for there times. look on the net you will find they are worth 500 & up it seems

Re: kay kraft

The Kay Krafts were made in the 1930's. The are predecesors of the Kay guitars . They are a collectable instrument but not a high quality one. they go on ebay for $200 - $400 and elsewhere for more.

Framus acoustic guitar

Hi, I have an old Framus acoustic guitar that I cant read the sloppy hand writing for the model number but serial number is 36845. If I guessed at the model number it would probably be 51795. Does any one know if this guitar is worth any value ?

I have the same model framus and I have been inquirering myself, a friend of mine with connections in the business made some calls and he said there was not much of a demand for framus acoustics as well as he said it is worth about $300 and that is with original case but I am not 100% sure this is reliable info but its all I know. I am still inquirering myself.

Levin guitars was from 50's to late 70's sold in US under the name Goya Guitars.
In 78, I thing, the company was taken over by Martin.
Your guitar is probably made in Korea, and the value are maybe not so high. But if you like to play on the guitar and the sound is good, then why not by it, if the price is OK.

Levin

I bought a Levin LDM 18 in 1980 in Munich
it sounded better than the 'real' Martin yo me
and that's what counts - and I'm still very pleased with it

Framus Hollywood

I'm trying to find information on a "Framus Hollywood". It's produced in 1960-65. Is there anyone who knows anything, and can tell me what it is worth. Thank You!!!¨
Kasper

Re: Framus Hollywood

I got one too, I love it. It´s got a sliding pickup, and when you push it next to the bridge it cuts through metal, the sound is razor sharp! I remember reading about the hollywood somewhere, but i can't remember where... I'll post it whenever I do, I think it was on the net.

Re: Framus Hollywood

I've got one, and I have the same questions as you have. Mine is just serviced and in perfect shape. I'm getting new strings tomorrow.

Re: Framus Hollywood

I'm a passioned guitar-customizer and I'm looking for the Framus Hollywood Tremolo. I asked a couple of othe customizers and they told me it was worth something between 300 to 400 US-$. If you want to sell it just write me and I'll buy it.

who makes this guitar?

I have a very old archtop acoustic w/ f-holes. there is no name brand on the guitar, but a serial # L8930 and another faded number
n3 printed inside the f-holes. the backside of the headstock between the tuners is a picture of a sheet music stand with the words "steel reinforced neck." I know this is probably not a Harmony since their numbers start with an H.
