Re: Kay Guitar ...Prototype???
I bought exactly the same guitar a few years ago and had the same problem identifying the real manufacturer.
Mine has a logo "Almirez", but I have been told too that these were distributed under the brand "Kay" in the states and "Almirez in Europe"
Could we by any means exchange pictures of our respective stuff, and especially would it be possible to obtain a picture of the internal wiring on your guitar, as I have a big problem with the electronics on mine.
It's supposed to be good stuff.
Check here :
And here :
There must be a model without effect which would not be far as good, according to the comments in Harmony Central.
Hope that helps a little bit.
: I just bought a Les Paul copy probably made in Japan.
: It is proported to be made in the 70's.
: It has no identifying name or serial number.
: The big difference it is a quasi-copy of a Les Paul Recording....with multiple built in electronic effects
: Phase in and out
: also with a headphone jack.
: all the effects work fine.
: I sent a picture to Gruhn Guitars in Nashville, and heard back from Walter Carter (the author) that it was a Kay...that's all the information I received.
: Anyone else know anything about it??
