1960's Old Kraftsman Archtop Acoustic Made by Kay
Used – Non Functioning
Originally $1,099, now $750 ($349 price drop)

This is a Kay Silvertone jumbo body archtop guitar made in the  late 1940's.  Plays and sounds good.  Fresh neck set.  The solid top has some repaired cracks (see photos).  New rosewood bridge. Interestingly, the body has rounded binding, which is unusual (see photo). Good tailpiece.  Attractive back and sides.  The chunky big neck is straight.  The figured rosewood fingerboard and frets are in good condition.  Back of the neck is clean (see photos).  Fancy inlays.  Good Grover tuners.  They have some surface rust.  Buttons will need changing at soon (see photos).  Comes with gig bag.  Thanks for looking and best of luck!
