UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A 1960 BARNY KESSLE KAY JAZZ ELECTRIC GUITAR. I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT GUITARS SO THOSE OF YOU WHO DO, WILL HAVE TO HELP ME OUT IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. I WAS TOLD BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER THAT IT IS A 1960 BARNY KESSLE. HE SAID THAT IT PLAYS VERY WELL. THERE ARE SOME SCUFFS ON THE FRONT AND SOME CHECKING IN THE PAINT ON THE BACK. THE WOOD IS ALL IN VERY GOOD CONDITION, THE NECK IS STRAIGHT. IT IS MISSING THE POST ON THE END THAT HOOKS ON YOUR GUITAR STRAP. IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL CASE. EMAIL WITH QUESTIONS. THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
The previous gave this info: Barney Kessel jazz special model 8700 S. Semi hollow body, 24.75 in. scale, 3-per-side-tuners, 2 pick ups, mfg. 1957-1960.

During the 1950s Kessel was playing Gibson archtops.Kay wanted to sponcer him and built a guitar to his specs.Unfortunatly the instrument didnt quite measure up to Kessels approval.So he went back to playing Gibson guitars.Overall I would say it is a beautiful and important artifact.
