Early 60s Kay "White Stripes" full depth archtop electric with pancake pup. I've hade this guitar for a long time, but I've finally got it equipped with all original parts (except for decal). Pancake pup is dark and woody sounding, and has quite a lot of output. Guitar looks, plays, and sounds great, but is not a museum piece. Small business-card thickness heel gap and two very small cracks in sides at heel joint. I don't think it's damage from abuse, but more likely the tiny cracks are from a careless neck removal sometime in the past. This poor guitar had been painted red (ouch!) and already partially sanded off, but the finish buffed back out remarkably well. Thank goodness for the thick glossy finish, 'cause there was plenty to work with. The little bit of wear through on top was already there when I got it. Ditto for the finish wear on the back of the neck, much of which looks like actual playing wear. Big Kay baseball bat neck, of course. A little bit of extra fretboard relief (and no truss rod adjustment), but action is still <1/8" with no major string buzzing. Very cool guitar.
Real charges only - no added materials or handling charges. All guitars insured for full value. I will use the least expensive shipping available, although this may be slow in some circumstances (e.g. parcel post). Please let me know if you desire a faster, albeit more, expensive service. Please allow 2 - 4 days of time to prepare and pack your guitar IN ADDITION to the actual shipping transit.
NO buyer's remorse PLEASE! Damage or loss in shipping = insurance claim (with which I will be glad to assist you). At my discretion, a disatistfied buyer may return a guitar (with a thorough explanation) for a full refund of purchase price but not of shipping. I'd rather begrudgingly take back a guitar than truly disappoint a customer. If, however, I have ever made a serious error in identification/originality/damage etc. that negatively affects a guitar's value, then a full refund including shipping will be given. PLEASE file any return claims ASAP - seven days at most.
