Description

Excellent mid-60s Kay Speed Demon. All original parts, except for bridge, which is a Kay piece from the correct era. Great condition - just minimal playing wear. Plays nicely with action at 3/32". Neck, fretboard, frets are not ABSOLUTELY perfect (it's a Kay!), but there are no plinky notes or cut-outs, and you can grab full-step bends with ease. Sounds cheap and snotty. Totally Indie/Emo. Made two mods for performance: 1) grounded it properly to the tailpiece, and 2) added pickup spacers to get the low output pups closer to the strings for more punch. These little spacers, made from black plastic pickguard material, could pass for original equipment, AND they did not require any changes to the guitar. You can remove them, or shave them down to your liking. BTW, the guitar is not quite as orange as it appears in the pics. It's cherry red. "With a red guitar, on fire..."

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.
