Early 1960's Kay archtop guitar, with later black tolex case. Figuring out the model of these guitars can be quite confusing, and this one is no different. The only internal markings are "L 1352", which research shows is probably a manufacturing lot number. There is also an N-7, which is sometimes mistakenly used a model. The Kay "T" logo dates it to 1961-1965. Cosmetically, it's in better than average condition. The tuners look like they could be replacements, but all else appears original. As is frequently the case, the action is pretty high up the neck and may require a neck reset to enable chording above about the 5th fret....or it could be a ready-made slide guitar. Either way, the condition is good enough to invest a bit into it.
