Info wanted on Vintage Kay Model KDG70S

Purchased at yard sale and can't find anything like it online. Has a double pickguard.

Kay Model KDG70S

Hello - I see this is an old post but wondering if you ever found out anything about it. I bought one exactly like yours - Kay model KDG 70S - also with the double pickguard. Not sure but I know back in the day a lot of company's denoted special order with the leter "S". That's about the only thing that makes sense as I've researched this model and also can't find anything else about it. Happy to find this so that I know someone didn't hand stamp the S on there and it was a true production guitar. If you've ever found anything else about it, I'd appreciate a heads up on it - my email is powwoweral@yahoo.com. Thanks - Max

Re: Info wanted on Vintage Kay Model KDG70S

I have a kdg 70 and i cant find any info on it

Don't buy from Kay

I think everyone should Boycott this company. The owner is, in my opinion, possibly the worst human being alive.

Kay 12 string

My Father-in-Law has a Kay 12 string guitar that has Steel Reinenforced Neck made in Korea stamped on the back of the neck. I would like some information about this guitar and am not sure how to go about getting it. The guitar belonged to his mother and was believed to be purchased in the mid-late 60's somewhere in Chicago. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Kay 3599 Acoustic Guitar

My cousin bought a K3599 for 20 bucks. It appears the neck is pulling towards the top, causing high action. He has steel strings on it but it seems to have classical bracing. My question is, could this be a nylon string guitar? We'd appreciate any info you can give us on this guitar.

Rply: Yes, they are classical guitars meant for nylon strings. You may want to refurbish it a bit too ^_^

Kay Guitar L419 6868

This guitar belonged to my husband's grandfather. He carried it around, playing for the troops during WWII. I am hoping that someone could tell me, please, how much the guitar is worth. It's in pretty good shape as old as it is; the only thing that isn't original, to my knowledge, is the strings and the bridge. His grandfather hand-carved a new one for it years ago. We're not really looking to sell it as the memories it holds are priceless, but are wondering just how much it may be worth. Thanks for any help you can provide!

I bought one on E-bay last year for $300

Kay acoustic Any idea where I can find info ?

I got this guitar off of craigslist I heard of Kay before but I have never seen this guitar before. It has a white pick guard nailed with 3 screws on it. It does not have a tail piece. The Headstock has a Kay tin punch over type emblem nailed to it. It has the American symbol of Kay from me looking around on there website. The only serial number I can find is in the body you can see it right by looking into the sound hole. The number on the inside is L 9193. I would appreciate it so much if any one has any info on the guitar.
