Holiday acoustic guitar

I picked up a nice little Holiday acoustic f-hole archtop guitar at an auction today. It appears to be in excellent condition except for a broken pickguard (which I need to replace), but I can't find any information about these guitars. It strongly resembles a Kay, but there is no Kay emblem anywhere on it. Who made them, when, were they made for a mail order company, etc? Can anyone help me with information about these guitars?

I, too am looking for information on Holiday guitars. I got one of their acoustics from a now-closed guitar shop in New Albany, Indiana, formerly known as the music parlor. The proprietor said he'd heard very few Holiday acoustics were made, something like 67 of them. It is a very nice instrument. The machine heads were crapola, so I put some good ones on it, but the rest is original. The bridge is like Ovation's where there are no pins and the strings feed in from the rear. The fretboard is dual radiused, flat at the nut and noticeably tighter radiused at the body. Mine has numbers, but one digit is illegible. It's either mahogany or Brazilian rosewood neck, back & sides, with a maple(?) top. It's for sale complete with case to the first $500 offered.

Re: Holiday acoustic guitar

ever have any luck finding anything out about HOLIDAY guitars? My son was given a HOLIDAY electric. Pretty solid little guitar and it says "MADE IN U.S.A." as well as "HOLIDAY" on the headstock.
thanks!

Old single cutaway pear shaped hole auditorium size

I had a Kay blond top, single cutaway, with a pear-shaped sound hole, and was auditorium size(large) with a deArmond pickup and a jack on the lower body. I had to sell in back in the sixties (Terrible). It was the best sounding accoustic guitar I have ever heard. I got it for my 13th birthday and loved it. (economics! ugh) Let me know if you see it and take a picture.

Kay acoustic guitar L-5641

I have an old Kay acoustic and would like to know what year it may have been built. It has L 5641 stamped on the inside of the hole and has the metal Kay logo on the head. The guitar body is shaped like a Hummingbird, square shoulder. Thanks.
Mike

Re: Kay acoustic guitar L-5641

Mike,
I'm searching for info on a # L 2541......also an old Kay...sounds a lot like yours.....
Leon

Re: Kay acoustic guitar L-5641

Also, it has a very unusual bridge. The strings are pushed through holes in the bridge from the sound hole side to the tail end then are bent back over the bridge nut piece and up the neck.
