30's Acoustic Archtop Guitar Kay Harmony
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-08)
Price : US $175.00
This is an unidentified archtop guitar made in the 30's. To me it seems similar to the higher end Kay and Harmony archtops from the same period. The person I bought it from compared the quality to Gibson and Martin. It is a nice guitar sturdily constructed with solid woods, Birdseye maple back/sides and a Spruce top. The upper bout measures 11 1/4' and the lower bout measures 15 1/2'.The person I bought it from also called it a bowfront because the arch is more prominent than most archtops. It is a good sounding guitar but it has that high 30's era action. It would make a good slide guitar, maybe the action could also be lowered a little. There are no cracks or previous repairs. There is a small section of loose lining about 1' inside the upper bout. I had this guitar listed a little while back with Buy-It-Now and it sold within minutes but it turned out to be too expensive to ship to the winner who lived in Canada. Will ship to Continental U.S. only. Thank You Much!
