Vintage Kay Guitar for under 30 dollars, What??

by adammormolsteinmusic

My favorite instruments are ones that are a little crusty, and one of a kind.  While driving down the street this weekend Caroline Burdett and I spotted a perfect little gem of a guitar at a garage sale.  A small scale, Kay K-200 Acoustic Guitar from the 1970′s.  It had only two strings, broken tuners, a busted bridge and a lot of dirt and paint on it, but it looked like the perfect candidate for a little DIY afternoon fun.

We were able to negotiate Mr. Garage Sale Man down from $10 to $8 and finally to $4 and some pocket lint.  Then we headed to Avenue N Guitars, and got some new tuners, and strings.  With a little elbow grease and and some finesse I was able to breathe new life into this little gal.  Now she plays like a dream. and all for under $30.  Score!
