Vintage 1920's Kay Kraft Acoustic Guitar
acoustic guitar with what appears to be the original chip board case.
This is an extremely rare Kay Kraft guitar, made by the Stromberg-Voisinet
company in the 1920's. Cool adjustable neck angle to set string height,
formica peghead overlay, mahogany neck, spruce top, and flamed maple sides
and back. Except for replaced tuning machines, completely original and
in structurally good condition. There are two loose braces under the spruce
top, which could easily be fixed by a competent luthier. Finish has some
dings and scratches and there is a 1 inch surface crack on the top to
the right of the ebony tailpiece. It can't be seen in the picture and
it is hard to notice. Includes original pickguard which will need a clip
to attach to the body. The pickguard had been moved at one time, and you
can see the extra hole in the picture. I think the guitar actually looks
better with the pickguard off. All the binding is intact. Scale = 25.75".
Lower Bout = 14". Overall Length = 40".
