Episode 5: The Kay Vanguard – Genius or Fluke?

In this episode of The Local Pickup, Jason and Chris continue wearing red shirts and talking about vintage guitars! This week’s subject is a Kay Vanguard from the ’60s, one of the most successful guitars of that era. This simple, inexpensive guitar was available everywhere, including Sears, which was part of why they sold so well!

Kay didn’t make fancy guitars, but they did make inexpensive guitars, which arguably helped propel the electric guitar into the main stream. Many of the rock stars of the ’70s and ’80s started on a Kay in the ’60s.
