Olivia's Vintage would like to present this extremely rare and unusual Valco made 1967 version of the K-650. The neck has a National style headstock with a factory Kay emblem, a pearl pickguard, pots dating to 1961, and a set of original Kleenex box pickups. This was made when Valco bought the Kay name. The original finish has a very consistent transparent orange color showing off its flame maple top and back. The finish appears transparent red underneath all the parts. The checkerboard binding looks great with this color. It has a good playing neck with good frets. It appears to be all original and is 100% complete with the exception of one screw in the control plate where there is no wood on the underside of that hole for the screw to grab ahold of. A later hardshell case is included. There are some nicks + dings, a chipped corner of the plastic in one of the pickup rings, and other cosmetic wear including some extremely minor finish checking. There is a small hairline crack in the body on the bass side of the neck pocket, but it remains more of a cosmetic issue as the guitar remains structurally sound. There is also a very tiny hole on the face of the headstock between the low E + A tuning pegs. All electronics work and sound great as all solder joints remain original and untampered with.

Our guitars are usually packed the same business day that we receive payment. We take the utmost care when packing our guitars and basses to assure that they arrive safely. We detune all guitars so that there is no tension on the neck, then the guitar is packed inside the case so that it does not move during shipment. After the guitar is safely packaged inside the case we wrap the case with several layers of half-inch tall bubble wrap. After the guitar is wrapped it is placed into one of our custom-made double-walled cardboard boxes of the appropriate size. We then use packing peanuts or packing paper to fill any negative space in the box so that the guitar is secured with several inches of padding and does not move around. This way, even if the guitar is mishandled during shipment, it will arrive safe and sound. Our guitars are usually shipped the same business day that we receive payment. Most of our guitars are shipped UPS, and items are always fully insured. If you would like a guitar shipped with FedEx or USPS, please let us know and we can accommodate your needs. Because of insurance the price of shipping will vary, so please email us for an exact shipping quote. Shipping for most guitars will be around $50.
If you feel that we have misrepresented anything, please contact us within 48 hours, and ship the guitar back to us. After we receive the guitar and it is in the same condition as when it was sold, we will give you a full refund minus the shipping charges.
