1954 SILVERTONE KAY THIN TWIN JIMMY REED VINTAGE
PAW PAW, MICHIGAN, 49079, USA
$800.00

For your consideration, I have a (what i believe to be) a 1954 Silvertone / Kay THIN TWIN. I'm basing the year on the style of the pickguard, the headstock design and information i read in my Vintage Guitar magazine that featured these guitars. The codes on the pots are covered with soldier. The only thing i could find is a couple numbers inside under the pickguard. The guitar is all original with the exception of the 3 screws that hold on the tailpiece. The toggle tip and the logo appear to be ... more

1954-1956 Silvertone 1381 "Thin Twin" Jimmy Reed! Kay K-161 Guitar
WOODLAND HILLS, CALIFORNIA, 91364, USA
$1375.00

Bought this guitar in Brooklyn about 20 years ago. It's the Silvertone version of the Kay K-161 "Thin Twin", as played by such blues luminaries as Jimmy Reed, Howlin Wolf and Hubert Sumlin. Versions of this same guitar were sold through Spiegel and Montgomery Wards as well. They differed cosmetically but had all the same hardware. I think I like this the best of all the various Thin Twins because the pretty sunburst finish, the engraved headstock and the multi-colored crown / shield with eighth ... more

EXTREMELY RARE 1954 Gibson Les Paul Jr 2-PIECE MAPLE BODY! Junior Burst Standard
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, 64112, USA
$9500.00

1954 Gibson Les Paul Jr. MAPLE w / OSSC! Incredibly rare. Very early 1954 Gibson Les Paul Junior with a 2-piece Maple body and other very early features. Neck heel is a bit longer, bridge is closer to the pickup and angled more, and of course it's a 2-piece MAPLE body versus the standard 1-piece mahogany body. The guitar is 100% original with no issues (it looks like a bit of glue was added in one stud to stabilize). The tuner buttons are shrinking and I will replace them if you'd like. Rare ... more
