Kay acoustic guitar

Regarding a Kay vintage acoustic guitar. My son just acquired one that was made around 1960 and is wondering what it is worth as he was told that this model is no longer made (not sure of the model).

Re: Kay acoustic guitar

Look on ebay under kay guitar, just scroll until you find a similar guitar. They made literaly thousands of guitars a month, so the value may not be very high, depending on the condition. good luck.: Regarding a Kay vintage acoustic guitar.

What is this Kay please?

Can any kind soul identify a Kay solid body guitar I have here? It is a Strat-meets-Burns shape, Fender shaped headstock, body basic sunburst with a single pickup on a black plastic scratch plate. Bridhe stop reminds me of an early telecaster with the chrome cover. Obviously very budget and without a serial number. There is a photo at http://www.strathbeg.com/pics.htm bottom right hand corner of the page.

Any help much appreciated, esp model and age.

Custom Kraft Black Les Paul Copy

Black Les paul Copy, Mother of pearl(fake?) Logo and fret markers. Stock #2244...Serial #526. Anyone know the birthday and value. Looks great and plays great.

Re: Custom Kraft Black Les Paul Copy

Your Custom Kraft Les Paul Copy was made in Japan from 1969 to 1971 for St.Louis Music company and was the same model 2244 as the Electra with the same model number.It was discontinued in 1971 just before the Electra line was introduced.I have seen a few of these and none has a serial number over 3 digits long.Very few were made.Value is what someone is willing to pay.Probally $200-$400.

Re: kay guitar

: i have akay guitar #k22 8110 how old is it/does anyone know!

Re: kay guitar

: : i have akay guitar #k22 8110 how old is it/does anyone know!

It depends on the fret markers; double trapezoid from 1955 to 1962; otherwise a 1952 to 1954

K 22

Is a K 22 a ladder braced, or X braced?

Kay Vintage Series Bass Guitar

Im trying to find out more info on this......i dont see any model number on it, all there is in the Kay vintage series since 1890 on the top and on the back there is a sticker that says made in china H.S. Choi and then handwritten is 947078. HELP.

Can somebody help me identify my Kay guitar??

I recently purchased a Kay guitar from the music store down the street from my house, and I would like to know some information about it. I know that it was made sometime in the 1960's by Kay, and that's all I know. It is a solidbody electric guitar with three pickups and six control knobs. (3 for tone, 3 for volume)It has a red tint to it that fades to black around the edges. I think that a big clue to finding out the year may be the fact that the control knobs are black with a gold face. On the face is a black triangle. If you have ANY information about this guitar or any questions, please reply.
Thanks,
Cody

Kay Guitar model L9866

I just bought this guitar at an antique shop. had it cleaned and restrung and it sounds wonderful. The guitar shop guy told me it is not a "modern" guitar as it lacks a neck adjuster. The only description is inside: L9866. A few inches away from that, and upside down, is stamped "N3". The guard is colored deep rose. On the handle, is an Art Deco inlay with the word "KAY" spelled out below the Kay logo. The body is a light chestnut color.
Any information would be appreciated.
