This vintage Kay Vanguard electric was made in the USA in 1963. The guitar is completely original except the knobs and one of the tiny screws in the pick guard. The De’Armond pickup has very warm tone. The guitar plays great and sounds great. It has all the cosmetic wear you’d expect from a 55 year old guitar, but nothing’s is damaged or bad about the guitar. The tuning pegs are, again, original, and they are a pretty stiff to turn. They could be made to turn better with graphite, but then you could introduce slipping if you put too much. You could also upgrade the tuners if you chose, just hang on to the originals!
