Condition Description & Flaws Noted:   

This is a Vintage & Clean 1960s Kay Speed Demon that's truly an eye catcher, and plays great! This guitar was professionally gone over and there are no signs of breaks, repairs, damage or refinishing.  The finish on this guitar is original, black lights consistently over the entire guitar, although its does show some age. There will be average finish checking, scratches, dings, dents, chips and wear here that I consider to be minor given its age (see all pics below). There are a few small empty screw holes that are hard to see. The frets are in good shape, showing average wear and plays fine as it sits (see pics). The hardware does show discoloration as pictured. The back of the neck and headstock are also in good shape, also showing average flaws here and there (pictured).  The electronics are all original and operate perfectly.    

Take a look at all of the pics to see cosmetic condition.

This guitar plays great for a 55+/- year old guitar. The neck is straight with a working truss rod and good action.  Although, I think its set up just fine, everyone has their own preferences. If your not happy with its set up, it will be your responsibility to have it set up to your liking..     

Comes with everything shown in the pics!
