VINTAGE 1960's OLD KRAFTSMAN KAY SPEED DEMON ELECTRIC GUITAR K-573 USA

Hays, Kansas, 676**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$799

This is a VINTAGE 1960's OLD KRAFTSMAN SPEED DEMON ELECTRIC GUITAR. Model K-573. It was made in the USA by KAY. They were branded OLD KRAFTSMAN and distributed through the Spiegel Catalog Co. The original Speed Bump pickups have a date code '060765' so I assume the guitar and PU's were made in 1965. This guitar is complete and mostly original. I have added a new pickguard and replaced the center pickup (with a speed bump from the late 50's). Everything works as it should. PLAYS GREAT! SOUNDS ... more

Vintage 1966 Kay Speed Demon K573 Guitar Thin Hollow Body USA Speed Bump Pickups

Vintage 1966 Kay Speed Demon K573 Guitar Thin Hollow Body USA Speed Bump Pickups

Springville, New York, 141**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$650

Good condition with plenty of dings and scratches. The paint is chipped and missing in some areas. That being said, it plays and sounds awesome. The neck is straight, and the action is pretty good. You could probably get it lower, but you would have to cut the slots deeper or find a lower bridge. Great affordable vintage guitar. Includes original case. Please email questions.

Kay Speed Demon Red Hollow Body Guitar mid 60s vintage

Goodview, Virginia, 240**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$550

This guitar sounds and plays beautifully. Electronics function properly. Some wear, knicks and finish checking typical for an old guitar like this but no cracks or any type of major damage at all. Top has faded to an almost orange shade. Sounds great unplugged or plugged in. Will feedback with high gain but if you can tame it it sounds killer! Could benefit from a little cleaning and restringing though the current strings aren??t super old. May need to be setup to your individual tastes. No ... more

Kay / Old Kraftsman Speed Demon electric semiacoustic guitar.

Cwmbran, NP44***, UNITED KINGDOM

£730

This is a 60s instrument made by Kay in the USA. Kay made guitars for a lot of other brands as well as their own. Old Kraftsman is the name used by, I believe, a mail order company called Spiegal (nothing to do with Lord of the Rings) It is in good condition for nearly 60 years old. It has a few small scuffs and dinks showing it's had a life, but nothing to structurally impede it (see photos). It is all original except for the replica pickguard. Action is medium to low and the neck is straight. ... more
