About This Listing

Up for sale is this vintage 1961 Kay K100 Vanguard electric guitar. This is a super cool, one owner instrument and is about as clean as they come.

This guitar, like 99% of them out there, does have a decent amount of relief in the neck and the truss rod is maxed out. The action is nice and low on the first few frets and then gets higher up the neck. The last few frets do fret out due to the kick up at the end of the fretboard. That reason is why most of these are used for slide guitars, but this one isn't unplayable as it sits.

The electronics have just been sprayed out and cleaned up. Everything works as it should and the original pickup sounds great.

The original owner added his name to the pickguard, which is super cool and makes this one stick out. The original pickguard has shrunk some over the years which has lead to some small cracks around the screw holes and the original plastic end pin has broken off long ago (all pictured). The original finish is very clean, but does show some light nicks and dings.

The original softshell case is included and, again, is about as clean as they come. The only issue is that the pocket lid inside has broken loose. The rest of the case is extremely clean and all of the latches are there and functional.

Overall, this is a very cool, personalized example of an inexpensive vintage instrument. They don't show up this cool every day, so don't miss out!
