Vintage '20s-30s Stromberg Voisinet Kay Kraft 2 Point Venetian Mahogany Archtop!

 

The iconic 'Curley Weaver' model!! I have owned this for over 35 years - time to move on. When I got it, serious work was needed.  I had the neck professionally refinished -looks wonderfully aged now. Also - fingerboard was a cheap dyed maple that disintegrated. Replaced with rosewood. Body needed help too. The front has collapsed and had to have a new brace put in. there is a large neck block in that area - very secure reinforcement. The pickguard covers some of the cosmetic damage on the treble side.  There are still some visible hairline scars but the area is secure. Pickguard is a repro. The rest - well, look at the pics!   REALLY an eye-catcher, huh?   Bottom line - has needs but is a somewhat scarce, desirable old Kay and the mahogany body really mellows things out! The guitar has been priced accordingly.


 

  - BEST OF LUCK!

TERMS OF SALE

Sold 'as-is'. Needs and restoration past has been described - particulary the neck situation. 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 and basic woodworking skills. If there is any chance that you would NOT be happy with doing your own   set-up, it may be best to pass on this listing. I'd rather avoid any unpleasantness because of unmet expectations.
