KAY OVERVIEW:Kay primarily manufactured 'department store' style, inexpensive guitars
from the 1930's to the 1960's. But they also made some hi-end, quality
archtop guitars. The most collectable Kays are any model with the 'Kelvinator'
plastic headstock overlay with art deco patterns.
Used from 1957 to 1960,
this headstock was named after the brand of refrigerator that looked quite similar.
This overlay was injection molded with clear acrylic plastic and then
back-painted either white or black, with gold highlights in the crest
and gold dots outside of the crest. Starting in late 1960, Kay switched to
a less expensive 'half' Kelvinator that used just the triangle Kay crest
from the full Kelvinator, screwed to a simple black plastic headstock
veneer. This 'half' Kelvinator dropped the black or white back-painted
acyrlic 'lunchcountertop' surround with gold dots. This design only lasted
till the end of 1961 when the Kelvinator headstock was completely dropped.
