Vintage 1950's Kay Archtop Electric Guitar!

Player's Guitar! "Relic" Condition!

This is really Cool. You are looking at a Vintage 1950's Kay Archtop Electric Guitar. This is a Player's Guitar. This is a modded Kay Archtop. The former owner of this Archtop, installed a Mini-Humbucker pickup. There is not a volume or Tone knob. You have to control the output on your amp. The Neck has a "Poor Man's Reset" which is a screw through the heel. (See picture #11). Neck is not original. Fits well and does the job. The original finish has been stripped off the body as well as the neck. It is now a Natural Finish guitar. Lots of cool wear marks. Has that Retro Vibe!
Awesome Player!

    Our luthier did a complete setup. Brand new strings were installed. Gig ready on Arrival!

    Nut Width: 1 5/8"

    Cosmetics: Good "Relic" Condition. There are scuffs, scratches, chips and dings on both sides of the body. Neck and Fingerboard in good shape. Some scratches on the headstock. Plenty of street cred. Very Authentic. Dripping with "Mojo" Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story. Top 40 Guitars is a Veteran Owned Business. Thanks For Supporting Veterans!
