The Kay Value Leader series was a lower-end line produced by Kay in the early '60s. Most of these guitars featued a long chrome pickguard on the treble side of the body, though some had a parallel guard on the bass side as well. This guitar was made with either one, two, or three pickups, known as the K1961, K1962, and K1963 respectively. 

The single pickup version is less valuable than the two and three pickup models.

Years of Production: 1960 - 1965
