This is an early 1960's Kay guitar that I bought for $65 and dropped about $150 into to get it to the final restore. The neck was separating from the body, it was badly beat up and someone had tried to do a restoration that didn't work well at all. Now it plays as it did when new.
I kept _all_ the original parts except: new fretboard, frets and binding (both the body and neck), new pick guard, new truss rod. The finish is Stew Mac Tobacco Brown and Amber, with Deft nitrocellulose as the base clear coat and Behlen as the final coats.
