Vintage Acoustic guitar Kay project solid top Kluson
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-30)
Price : US $18.29
Up for auction is an old project acoustic guitar. The fingerboard has been removed. It needs a truss rod installed. There are several top cracks. Some have been glued and cleated. The others will need to be repaired.
I believe this was made by Kay, but I am not certain. The rosewood fingerboard has been removed and is included.
Since the neck joint is exposed, it would be very easy to remove the neck. It should be reset in order to have an ideal saddle height.
The original nitro finish is haevily checked, but has a cool vintage vibe to it.
The checkerboard purlfling is in good shape. The binding on the treble side of the top is missing.
The top is solid spruce. The back and sides are laminated.
The guitar includes Kluson Deluxe tuners.
Inside the soundhole is stamped ''L 1198''
This guitar was originally an acoustic electric. |There is a hole cut out of the magnetic pickup. There are holes for the tone and volume pots as well as one in the side for the jack.
The electronics are not included. They are being auctioned seperatly. The bridge is a pinless bridge.
The guitar has a picture of ''Kilroy'' carved into the top. |It's a pretty cool piece of folk art that with some tlc will make a fine guitar.
This is a project guitar and is being sold ''as-is.'' An old chipboard case will be included.
Insured shipping to the lower 48 states will $40. Anywhere else will be actual shipping and material costs.
