Summary: This is a very cool mid-1960’s Kent Lido Model 531 with two single coil pickups, original tremolo system with “KENT” engraved cover and the original “KENT” logo on the headstock.
Body: Solid body, slightly offset dual cutaway electric guitar.
Neck: Fully bound maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard, 20 frets, 6 original tuning keys with white buttons, pearloid inlays. The frets on this guitar do show some wear but they still have life left in them.
Pickups/Hardware: 2 single coil pickups, 2 on/off selector switches, 1 volume knob and 1 tone knob, rhythm/solo switch, chrome hardware, original bridge cover with the “KENT” engraved logo.
Cosmetics: This vintage guitar shows normal wear that is consistent with a 50 year old instrument – there are scratches & nicks & dings on the guitar and the mirror pickguard shows some scratching & wear but overall this guitar is in good playable condition. There is some buckle rash on the back of the guitar & some wear around the edges of the guitar. The original “Lido” label is still on this instrument!
Playability: This vintage guitar actually plays pretty good – the action is comfortable & the guitar has been set up with 10’s and it is ready to be played & loved. This baby doesn’t play as easily as a PRS but the neck feels good and the truss rod works! The action does get pretty high when you get further up the fingerboard but the notes still play & there are no dead spots.
Weight: 7 lbs, 4 oz.
Case: This guitar comes with an awesome vintage chipboard case with faux alligator covering.
