PLEASE SCROLL DOWN AND CHECK ALL THE PHOTOS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE LISTING. JUST FORWARD AN ADDRESS IF THE PHOTOS ARE NOT LOADING AND I'LL EMAIL THEM TO YOU!!!

My guess would be this guitar was made by Kay sometime pre war or possibly in the 50's. It has a decal on the headstock that reads PENN, Los Angeles, California. Kay made the Penncrest brand for JC Penny among others and the headstaock is similar to other Kay brands too, but I really don't know. I have owned a few Penn guitars thru the years but I'v never met anyone who knew a lot about them. This one is the most high quality models I'v come across. Usually they are parlor guitars. It appears to be solid wood and plays real easy with a straight neck. There is no truss rod. It features old Kluson open tuners with screws, not rivets. Comes with the case as shown...

Although it is currently strung with nylon classical guitar strings for a special session, It has also been strung with Martin folk silk/steel for fingerstyle blues. It does have a wide neck as a classical guitar and is a joy to play. The nut width is 2" and scale is 24 3/4". I could not find a serial number but I would imagine there is one somewhere, or there was once an inside label...
