This beautiful Vintage Kay is in remarkable condition both aesthetically and structurally. The nitrocellulose finish is gorgeous and original, the braces are all intact, the neck angle is nice and healthy and all the hardware is functioning and original. To top it off, this guitar has just recently been completely re-fretted meaning the frets on this guitar will play and look better than new with no buzzing or dead spots. It has also had a new hand carved cattle bone nut installed that will greatly improve its tone, tuning and playability. The setup that this guitar received here is nice and low comfortable. It plays like a new guitar.

I strongly stand by my work and believe that it is what sells my guitars. All of the repairs and setup work done at my shop is guaranteed. Not only am I willing to warranty the repair work that I do on any instrument for up to two years, I am willing to make sure that each player gets a setup on these instruments that works for them. If you need adjustments made to an instrument's setup that is bought here, I will do my best to make sure I can make it work for you.
The price is firm unless a trade can be offered. I know the value of the work I do and of the instruments themselves but I am always on the lookout for instruments that can be worked on and saved for a new life in a new home. I am open to partial trades.
I have other instruments here as well that you are welcome to check out and play and I also offer a full range of setup and repair services and sell a limited selection of accessories. Please feel free to call and setup an appointment.
