1963 Kay Red Devil
This guitar looks stunning, the transparent cherry finish really setting off the flamed maple of the top and back. There are the inevitable bumps and marks but there is nothing that really detracts from the look of the instrument. There is some discolouration to he binding and body on the lower bout near the controls.
The Bigsby B6 is vintage but a more recent addition as is the vintage dog bone bridge.
The neck, fretboard and frets are in equally good condition with plenty of life left in the frets.
The hardware is in good condition as are the plastics. The original pickguard is in the case with a reproduction, made by the previous owner, fitted to the guitar.
Electrics seem correct with a pair of correct ‘speed hump’ pickups.
The guitar comes with a hardshell case.
This guitar has an excellent roots/rockabilly guitar that evokes so effortlessly those tones, the hollowbody construction giving the sound a wonderful airy quality that wouldn't go amiss in a jazz setting either.
Looking for something a bit different? Look no further. This is such an inspirational instrument and would make a worthy addition to any collection.
