1965 Kay Vanguard
Electric Guitar
Made in USA
Includes: Guitar and Soft shell Case
I purchased this guitar online in 2019 and purchased all the parts separately for it.

Vintage 1960s USA Kay Vanguard II, clean and complete w-orig case

Youngstown, Ohio, 445**, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$750

Finish is rather ??satin??, however, which likely represents light surface oxidizing over the decades.
