Re: Kay Model #K570
I have a guitar like that too. Mine is an acoustic ("dreadnought" body size) with a vine engraving on the back. The label on the inside says "Model No. K570" and âMade in Koreaâ. The headstock is shaped like a Martin D-18. The pick guard has the orange and white circle Kay logo and a bird (with a nuclear logo) and a Native American pattern around it. There is a rosette around the sound hole as also. There are 20 frets. The Bridge has adjustable two screws. I brought at a thrift shop about ten year ago.
: : I think I may have a guitar like this too. Mine is an acoustic(the body being approximately the size of a Martin D-18) with sort of a vine engraving on the back. The label inside is hard to read but what I can read says "Model No. K 570" and then there is some kind of number beneath that but I can't make it out. Here is the confusing part, the peghead is shaped like a Galagher guitar and it has "Kalamazoo" INLAID in the peghead! I have checked with George Gruhn and also with Gibson's acoustic guitar expert, Walter Carter and neither one can identify it. I have pictures, if anyone would care to take a shot at identifying it. Also, I would like to sell it, if I could find out what it is worth.
: : Thanks
: : : Its hard to say without seeing the guitar.
: : : Maybe you can send some photo's of the guitar.

: : : : I have come across a Kay model K570. It is a nice sounding acoustic with engravings on the back. Can anyone give me the approximate age of the instrument?
: I have a Kay model K570 that my mother bought for me in 1978. Curious to know what it would be worth?
