Kay Swingmaster K 673 w/HSC 1960’s Dark Sunburst


1 in stock


Kay K673 Guitar with three of their big single coil pickups …..this is coolness …….Clapton started out on a guitar much like this with his first band the Roosters ! This one has been lovingly cared for over the years by an Atlanta player who played around town !! From Premier guitar ….

But the Gold K guitars did have cool pickups. They boasted single-coil with clear silver-tinged plastic covers and Phillips-head-screw adjustable pole pieces. These pickups appeared on various Kay instruments through the late 1960s and are sometimes called ‚ÄúKessel‚Äù or ‚ÄúKleenex box‚Äù pickups due to their use on the company‚Äôs famed Barney Kessel model and their resemblance to a tissue container.

The Kay Swingmaster K763 like this one , and its less flashy K762 cousin, was made from 1961 to 1965 and weighs a comfy 6 pounds and 6 ounces. The model sold for $250 to $400, depending on appointments. Perhaps the Brazilian rosewood fretboard on our Swingmaster would’ve been an upcharge. Another woody tidbit: the back and sides are a subtle flame maple.

Comes with a nice hardshell case …plays great ….no it plays amazing and is ready to go as is !!
