condition: good
make / manufacturer: Kay
model name / number: 161/Thin Twin/Jimmy Reed

Very cool 1950's Kay Twin Twin. Also known as the Jimmy Reed model. This is great example that has had a neck reset and the electronics gone through. As far as I can tell, it is all original except for the selector switch tip which had to be replaced(I believe I still have the old tip). Big fat neck on these guitars! Has its share of blemishes, but in generally great shape for a guitar this old. This version with the crown shaped headstock is quite rare. Might need to set up to your liking and some new strings. There is plenty of room to lower the bridge. Will come with a gig bag or chipboard case so you can get it home safe. Please! No tire kickers or lowballers. I am not desperate. If you have genuine interest, would love to let you try it out. $1499. Cash only. I will be selling a bunch of cool stuff. Much of it from the funky catalog guitar era all at prices below Reverb's average sale price. Keep an eye out.
