About This Listing

My name is Donna. I am the daughter of the late Mary Kaye of the Mary Kaye Trio, the Las Vegas entertainment legend, performer, singer, guitarist, songwriter, and entertainer's entertainer.  "You Tube - The Mary Kaye Trio". I am also the sole owner of the only Mary Kaye tribute Stratocaster that she owned. This is the re-issue of the blond body with gold hardware. What makes this guitar unique is the fact that it is a #1 in the series that was remade from the 1957 model that was only nick named after her.  This one that I have in my posession is the only Stratocaster built as a tribute to Mary Kaye, and named after her. It is the only one that she played, and it was customized by being hollowed out to lighten the weight to her personal taste and playing style. On the neck is a gold plate addressed to her, "To Mary Kaye from your Friends at Fender". It comes with the original factory case, all of the contents, the certificate stating it as the 001, (first in the entire series), plus some additional books and magazines from Fender and other Las Vegas magazines with interviews of Mary, her history and how the "Mary Kaye Stratocaster" came to be. So this makes it more valuable than the 1957 blonde version. I can prove who I am and the particulars on the guitar. Since her passing in 2007 I have been considering what to do with this magnificent guitar.  Since I am retiring and leaving Las Vegas I would like to make sure that it will be in the hands of someone who truely appreciates the story and value behind this guitar.  
Although I have originally desired much more for this guitar I am in dire straights due to the COVID19 epidemic.  So if you have a wish to own this piece of musical history and you have the financial means to possess it, I will do everything within my power to make this happen for you.  I am open for any reasonable offer.

Thank you for your time.
