Kay Model P4 Archtop with Full Kelvinator Headstock

Posted by G. Gustin on Wed, 01/22/03 - 12:44:50.

I acquired a large Kay archtop guitar and I am seeking a picture and parts list to restore it.

Specifications: Tobacco Sunburst Finish
Single neck P/U (not original)
Full Kelvinator Headstock over black finish/raised gold dots
Volume and Tone Control with gold speed knobs
Gold sparkle pickguard
Gold Tuners (not original)
Dot neck markers
"P4" stamped inside body on bass side

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Thank you.

Re: Kay Model P4 Archtop with Full Kelvinator Headstock

If it is of any interest to you, I just bought an old Kay Mandolin and it has P4 stamped inside, on the bass side. I was looking for the combination of P4 and Kay mandolin, and I got your note... I don't think this tells you anything, except maybe that the P4 was probably not a model... which is what your note tells me, too. So, it looks like you've got a gem! I've got two Kay guitars, but none so dressed up as the one you desecribe!
Hope you enjoy it!
