Yet Another Kay Comes Home To Roost
« on: September 13, 2014, 02:12:51 PM »
Kays just keep turning up at the door needing a good home. 

The latest is a 1938-1939 K-6.  15" lower bout and long 25 3/4" scale.  Nice spruce and mahogany.   What really caught my eye though was the ornamentation.  Black and white purfling and tort binding on the fingerboard, top, back and soundhole (even on the inside edge).  The biggest surprise though was the rounded edges of the fingerboard - what Kay called an oval fingerboard.  Just plain comfy.  Some wingnut had replaced the tuners slapping the new ones on the wrong side of the headstock.  But  I have a set of late 1930s Klusons in the parts box so no problem.

A wide open, big banging cowboy chord playing guitar.
