K44 ser#8405

I just started playing guitar with an old rebel named Angus Walker (A pioneer of Canadian Country and Bluegrass....he wrote Deisel Drivin' Man... toured extensively in the seventies world wide as The Prime Minister of Country Music). He handed me this old Kay 44 to pick on... what a lovely, bright sounding guitar. His Mom bought it for him over 50 years ago and it sounds great. Angus recieved a Maple Leaf music award in 1965 for the most promising country singer(him and Gordon Lightfoot). Soon after the awards became the Grammy's. So Keep your eyes peeled and your ears wide open for The Cape Breton Rebel - Angus Walker- and his Cape Breton Rebel Band. We're heading for the studio...

I have a guitar with k44 8405 stamped in it. I know it to be over 60 years old. If you have one with the same number in it, then it can't be one of a kind. Is it a model number? Tell me what you can. Thanks!
