Kay Violin-Style Guitar

...neck that allowed you to easily adjust neck tilt and, thereby, the action. Kay’s Kay Kraft Venetian archtops were the top of the line through the early ’30s and were joined in ’33 by the Arch Kraft line of archtops (again bent with round soundholes) with more conventional Spanish body shapes. Also in ’33 Kay introduced two other curious guitars, one a flattop with f-holes centered on the waist, the other an archtop described as having “arched top...

’68 Truetone by Kay/Valco

...ed instruments.M.C.A. closed the original Danelectro, and what was left of Kay and Valco was locked in a tailspin. Valco bought the remnants of Kay in ’67, and attempted to combine the brand with their own products, but to no avail. This Truetone model (Western Auto house brand) confirms the exist-ence of such instruments. The strap buttons and rocker switches (pickup off/on and tone) are from Valco, while the rest of it appears to be from Kay, li...

Kay Brand

The revived Kay brand has big plans that were announced at #NAMM2017, including a new version of the vintage top-of-the-line archtop, the great Barney Kessel series in both full-size and more-compact Artist versions. Kay’s working to get all the details just right, which means starting form scratch in remaking many of the parts instead of selecting off-the-shelf, proprietary parts; a prototype lyre-shaped tailpiece is the next step.

Fender Telecaster, Part I

...hat W.M.I. essentially made its transition from the Teisco Del Rey name to Kay. The earliest Kay copy guitars were based on Gibson’s SG and EBO bass, but by ’74 Kay had introduced the K-22T, a Telecaster with a Strat-style head, two humbuckers and a Bigsby copy. These were offered probably for the next few years. By the Spring of ’74, other companies, like Morris (Moridaira), had joined the frenzy with full lines of copy guitars. Indeed, the copy...

Stratospheric Variations

...rs as W.M.I. made the transition from using the Teisco del Rey name to the Kay brand, which it had bought at auction in ’69. By ’73, the Kay name had prevailed and the line shifted toward more conventional copies, including Strats. Strat-style guitars would be a major part of the Kay line going forward, even as production shifted from Japan to Korea, and then parts beyond.
