About This Listing

VALCO (Kay) Custom Kraft badged Speed Demon double cut hollow body guitar, 1950's early 1960's

Up for your consideration is this late 1950's /early 1960's Valco guitar. Valco released a bunch of guitars under different brand names such as Kay, Custom Kraft, and Truetone.

This Custom Kraft guitar is identical to Kay's "Speed Demon" model, except that instead of sporting the Kay's customary two or three woeful 'Speed Bump' pickups, it has the sought-after 'Kleenex Box' pickups. These rare pickups have very powerful tone juju, and I cannot speak highly enough of them.

The triple bound body is maple ply. Not sure of neck material, but it's the original. The truss rod works and a low action is obtainable if desired. The bound fretboard is Brazilian rosewood, which is allegedly the king/queen of soundboard materials. Various other aftermarket parts have been fitted (tuners, bridge, forward strap pin).

It should be noted that as you'd expect with most 60 year old guitars, there are various dings, dongs, scrapes, dents, corroded bits, scungy corners and whatever else on this instrument. I've attempted to show all of that in the item photos. However you should assume there are marks of use I haven't picked up on and photographed.

You should also assume that some further work may be needed to get it in optimal playing condition, though the guitar has been capably restored to a quite playable condition as it is.

If you have any further questions about the item or shipping rates, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I ship worldwide. Shipping will be via Pack and Send couriers.  Please note all shipping costs are best estimates only using the online shipping calculator.

Shipping form Australia to some destinations, such as for example most Central and South American countries, is extremely expensive.
Similarly, shipping to remote areas within Australia can cost as much as international shipping.

To avoid uneccessary surprises, please enquire first if you are unsure about shipping costs to your area or country.

Thanks for looking, and please don't forget to check my other listings.
