Kay model # K475

I got me a Kay 475 yesterday, its been sitting in a disaster house for years, looks like the same strings, Its a project guitar at this point, but I am going to try to make it come alive, the bridge is plastic and its cracked, so I have replaced it with a wood one, the saddle is plastic, I changed that out to bone, the pickguard is steel and in perfect shape, neck looks good, no adjustment, but it has a steel reinforced neck, says made in Korea on the back headstock, sderial number 230776, so I guess its a 1976, the flat top body is not flat, has a belly up behind the bridge, and sunk down in front of the bridge, I added a few temporary braces, I got a 30lb brick sitting on top of it right now, I moistened the inside of the sound hole, also added a cup with water, sealed it up and set the whole thing in at sunny spot in the house, if my little project works, great, if not, it might make a good paddle for my canoe. What ever happens, it will be better than when received.

I have been researching the same model.I'm not sure where they are made,I'm sure somewhere in Asia.But to figure out the year you need to find the serial number.I think the way to figure out the year of manufacture is, the last two didgets are the year it was made,and the numbers before the last two are the order that it was made that year in that given factory.Good Luck,
Jeff

Well call me goofy I see you have your serial number posted.I guess I was not paying close enough attention.It looks like it was made in 1976 and was the 20402nd one made that year in that factory.Hope it helps you out.
Jeff
