HERE'S A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO GRAB ONE OF THE LIMITED VINTAGE REISSUE KAY MODELS
NOW LONG GONE & NEVER TO RETURN...

A REISSUE OF ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS, REVERED, AND COLLECTED OF THE KAY ELECTRIC GUITAR!
Originally on the cutting edge of electric guitar design, the Jazz II is an extremely versatile instrument for stage and studio, with the ability to deliver a range of sounds from warm jazz to shredding heavy metal.
The Jazz II double-cutaway electric guitar has a 15-inch wide thin hollow body with a rosewood fingerboard with shark fin inlays, Grover tuners, Bigsby Style Tremolo and two single coil pickups. This edition was developed and created by known luthier Roger Fritz.
Among the most notable of artists in the early '60s was 17 year old Eric Clapton who used the Kay Jazz II with his first band "The Roosters". Striking beauty, tone, and playability make this guitar an overall winner in any style of music and provides a vintage chic that will continue to "wow the crowd."
Includes hardshell case.
