I came across this Kay acoustic today, it's the first time I've seen a Kay with this logo and bolt on neck. Any ideas??
I have one of these guitars. It is simply awesome and decades ahead of its time... Here it isKay was slapping bolt on adjustable neck on their guitars before they were even known as Kay.
Here is one from the 1930s.
By the mid-1960s it cost less to make a guitar in Japan than what Valco was paying for just the wood. So a bolt on neck was probably more a cost cutting thing than anything else. Valco, of course, went belly up a year or two after your guitar was made.
That's a cool looking guitar!!! Mines in good shape, the neck is straight and frets are not too worn. The guitar shows it's age and the only thing wrong with it, it needs a new nut, it's damaged. It's dark sounding and the action is high enough to just play slide on it.I have one of these guitars. It is simply awesome and decades ahead of its time... Here it is
