For sale vintage Kingston Parlor style acoustic guitar, estimated 1970’s. Appears to be maple, but not certain. Picked up from estate sale, cleaned up, truss rod and bridge height adjustments, strung with low tension silk steel strings, tuned using electronic tuner as 5th fret tuning did not yield fully in tune play. Played with bridge height but could not get tuning using 5th fret method acceptable. Plays nicely when tuned with electronic tuner, has a warm rich tone.

There’s no other information on this instrument other than the raised Kingston logo on headstock that I could find. This guitar has plenty of scratches, nicks, dings and dents, which I feel adds to the character of this guitar. From research there’s not much information regarding the when, who, where on this and most earlier Kingston guitars. but online article at vintage guitar-1933-jack-westheimer provides interesting insight on the history of Kingston guitars brought into the USA. I’ve also made a video of me playing this guitar with comments to review via YouTube link if interested. Thanks for looking, and let me know if you have any questions.
