Vintage '50s Kay Old Kraftsman Pinstripe Deco Archtop Jazz Blues Guitar !

 When was the last time you met an old Kay with a decent neck angle? You CAN PLAY this guitar!!!!!

Probably has been re-set sometime over the years. Similarly, I am sure that the top & back edges have been re-glued (for those familiar with painted binding guitars, you already know that the the edges tend to become unglued and usually require attention at some time). You will see some sections of slight 'over & underbite' where realignment wasn't perfect. Laminate birch body from what I can tell. Good/average cosmetics, decent neck. Will require strings and personal set up.

 BEST OF LUCK WITH THE AUCTION!

TERMS OF SALE

Sold 'as-is'. Needs have been described. Please examine pictures for detail and determine if this is a project that you would like to undertake. I would advise AGAINST purchasing this guitar with the intent of having a luthier/'guitar tech' put it back together for you - too costly and this really doesn't require any advanced skills other than common sense, changing strings, etc. If there is any chance that you would NOT be happy with doing your own restoration, repairs, & set-up, it would probably be best to pass on this listing. I'd rather avoid any unpleasantness because of unmet expectations.
