Up for Sale is a
Vintage '60s Kay Speed Demon!
Model K573 Semi-Hollowbody! Made In USA!
This is really cool. You are looking at a Vintage 1960's K573 Speed Demon. This is Semi-Hollowbody Thinline Electric Guitar. This Speed Demon is a fine example of this model. Has the classic "DeArmond Speed Bump" pickups. This is the sought after 3-pickup model. Plays and sounds great. Not anywhere close to the quality of a Gibson, but is still a great playing and sounding guitar. If you are into that "Trashy" '60s sound, this will do. Guitar is mostly original. The "Kay" headstock logo is a reproduction. The bridge has been replaced and the headstock has been repaired. Other than that, it seems to be all there.
*** Headstock Repair***
There was a crack in the Headstock where the neck meets the headstock. Our luthier professionally repaired it and painted and re-cleared the crack. Solid and Tight. Better than New! You have to look real close to see it. (See picture #9).
The DeArmond Speed Bump pickup gives this guitar a really awesome sound. Lightweight at just under six pounds, this is a comfortable playing guitar. the cutaway gives you the mobility of getting to the higher notes. Tuners are original and work just fine. Overall, a lot of fun to play. Whether you are into gigging or just playing at home this guitar will give you that "Right" sound at a reasonable price.
These Speed Demon's do not come along very often. This is your chance to get a USA Vintage guitar at an affordable price.
Our luthier did a complete setup. Brand new strings were installed. Gig ready on Arrival!

Cosmetics: Good "Relic" Condition. What I mean by "Relic" is there is some wear on this guitar due to use. Keep in mind that this is a 60+ year old vintage guitar. There are scratches, chips, nicks, dings and dents on both sides of the body. Neck, Headstock and Fretboard in great shape. Very Authentic. Cool wear marks everywhere. Dripping with "Mojo". The wear is what gives it it's charm. It is used. Not perfect. Good Condition. Overall, a really nice guitar. Look at the pictures closely. They will tell the story.
