Kay Semi-hollow project guitar in NJ for $75

This speed Demon single is only missing a pickup and pots and an output jack.  These are completely hollow guitars so it wouldn't be too hard to work on if you have some dexterity and patience.  I rewound two pickups and remounted them myself in a similar speed demon TRIPLE - and that one had 6 control pots and 3 pickups - cripes now that was a pain in the a**.  This one is a much more simple project.

If I had this guitar neck and body I would personally find a decent (old or new) single P90 pickup with a volume and tone pot and top mount it on this bad boy.  That would make this very similar to a 1960's Gibson ES-125TC which is one of my favorite old vintage hollow bodies.  Serious blues crunch and mojo.

For sale I have a Kay "I think the model is called the Speed Demon" hollow body guitar. Pretty rare guitar - does not have half the bridge or any electronics - this model complete sells between $325 and $500 on ebay. Comes with what is in the picture "besides the carpet haha". Has the original tuners on it and they seem to work fine. I believe the wood is mahogany with a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. Dark tobacco sunburst color - worn with some finish cracks "has the cool old finish that cracks - not modern polyester". I think it is from the 50's but it could be 60's.

Location: Mount Laurel
