Old Gibson Guitar

My uncle passed away in 1984 and my aunt has kept his old guitar in a room over her garage (with other junk). She is now 87 years old and in an assisted living facility. I am curious about the guitar - don't think it is very valuable but thought I could get it cleaned up and let my grandchildren play with it. Inside the guitar there is a label that state "KENT - Maxwell Meyers in Texas, Southland Musical, model XT 350 Made in Korea" and on the neck there is a a sticker that says "WD20678. Is there anyway I can find out about this guitar and if it is worth having it cleaned? Thanks so much for your response.

I guess no one wanted to

Re: unknown kent guitar and value sought

I have a kent acoustic that was given to me for Christmas almost 20 years ago. The model number is kf210, its small and from what I'm told its a rather cheap guitar. The tail piece broke on it and has been replaced, and it has new strings on it. It still plays very well. If anyone has eny idea if it is valuable please send a message.

Re: unknown kent guitar and value sought

I have a Kent hollow body guitar.
How can I tell how old it is?
I dont see any serial number on it
It's thin, red, two kent pick ups
whammy bar
plus a device that touches the strings from underneath, its a lever
thanks

Re: unknown kent guitar and value sought

I also have an old Kent. It's a strat design like the Hagstrom I, with yellow/red/black sunburst, an aluminum pickguard, two white single coils, clean white original knobs (one lever and two rounds; though I don't know what the symbols stand for), rosewood finger board, and what I call a floating bridge (not screwed down). I've tried to find information about it, but only know it's related to the Hagstrom line that tried marketing in the US through Japanese production in the sixties. If you have information about it, I'd appreciate some guidance. I'll borrow a friend's digital camera and send you an attachment if you like. I have the original case, but the handles broken. But the guitar is clean as a whistle. The original owner didn't like it because it was noisy and left it under his bed for thirty years. I found the bridge ground wire wasn't attached to the bridge.

I also have another unusual guitar. It's a '62 Gibson EB2 bass. People tell me it's an EBO, but the sticker you see through the f-hole says EB2. It's also a sunburst. Why do you collect Kents?
