The chocolate tape was sliding off the reels and across the silver recording heads, while the needles on the two meters jumped to the beat on the face of the big Ampex. This was 1959 and I finally had German mics and a Cadillac of a recorder and was doing stereo - the first stereo field recordings made in the South. You should hear the recordings - for me a life's dream realized - Alan Lomax, The Land Where the Blues Began

Kay jumbo flattop
« on: April 02, 2006, 07:08:53 PM »
While visiting one of the local guitar shops last weekend I came across an old Kay flattop guitar.  Really beat, but good looking in a funky sort of way.  ;)   Guitar was setup pretty well, and is a lot of fun to play.  17" wide with a whopping 26" scale.  Solid plywood construction throughout, ladder braced.  I have no idea when it was made, or what the model number is.  http://www.dharmastrum.net/Kay.html

I agree about the looks and sound.  So, I did buy it - who could resist?  ;)
