Ok I got this K-1 at a antique shop for 60 dollars and it was in perfect condition, plays great, sounds great, and looks great. I was wondering how much it would be worth. It is missing no parts and is in mint condition.

I would love to find some information on my Kay 40. It's Flamed Maple with a natural Spruce top, tortoise binding and toroise pick guard. The headstock has a tortoise face plate and a really cool Art Deco script Kay, with "40" below it in white and gold. Kluson 3-on-a-plate tuners. The finger board is Brazilian RW with a center section of Maple that runs the entire length. Pictures can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/slater/kay_40

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).
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.

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.
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.
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.
I have been given an old Kay Kraft guitar. It has the neck bolt, X bracing, Mother of Pearl head, gold leaf, arch top. The finnish is crassed, but it is in good shape for a 70 year old insterment. Can anyone tell me what it is worth? It needs a replacement pick guard, are they available?

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