model KDG 77 with AWESOME case

Posted by Nancy on Thu, 06/25/09 - 01:31:32.

Can anyone tell me a little about my guitar, 1977, made in Japan, model KDG 77 Original case AWESOME, all blue with large orange Kay logo across the front. I have had massive interest in the case but no offers were made as I wasn't selling. Would love to know the worth of both.

model KDG 77 with AWESOME case

Hi there,

please be aware of your 1977 Kay japan as it may worth good money (no like the ignorant that says $50).
note that I sold a wooden color like yours from 1977 in perfect condition with not scratches for over $500 about 3 years ago. It might not be a great guitar but is a real piece of vintage collection.
good luck.

Kawai Kay

That one is not worth anything. Maybe $50 if nice guitar. What can you get for $50? Laminated top and sides. Plywood back. It is for poor people to play when they should be working. Like old red label Yamahas. They are junk. there were some good ones in the 80s. 60s and 70s guitars arenot good at all. Lokk at the 30s too. They are like $60.

I have one too, black case, yellow stripes and big yellow "Kay". What I have learned was that Kay generally made inexpensive instruments for schools. They did make a few nicer instruments but generally the company was more a mass produced biz model. I've had mine since the mid 70s. It's very solid, slightly hard to play for beginners but it made my hand strong. It takes a lot of effort to get it to go out of tune.

Can anyone tell me what woods were used on it(back and sides)Is it some time of rosewood?
