Kay Vanguard - 2 pickup electric in Santa Cruz for $200

These Kay Vanguards are highly under-rated guitars.  To me they sound and play as well as the old Harmony H44's for slide.  Really bright, soulful tone - especially if you put nice heavy strings on it.

If you've never played one of these through an old amp with a slide you really ought to give yourself a treat.

Here's my Kay Vanguard guitar. This thing is totally awesome - super resonant, with incredible swampy blues slide tone. The electronics work perfectly and the guitar is very playable. The frets are somewhat worn down and there are a few buzzy spots on the high strings around the 7-10 frets. It's perfect for slide and has a tone you just won't find with other guitars. There is plenty of wear that you would expect for a guitar of this age, but it's all cosmetic. I've shown pictures of the most significant wear including some finish wear on the back (not a crack!), and an indentation on the fretboard. As mentioned, these are cosmetic issues which do not affect the playability at all. It's my only vintage guitar and I'd love to keep it, but I need the money right now.

Feel free to email me with any questions. Unfortunately, my work schedule makes it such that I don't get home till around 7pm Tuesday - Saturday, so showings will have to be after 7pm.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
