Truetone (Kay) electric in Round Rock TX for $125

The guy who bought the last one of these I listed sent a comment and said he absolutely loved it.  This one is even cheaper.  hehe. I don't know why the seller is calling it a 5-string unless he's got it set up ala Keith Richards (which is very possible tuned in D). Note that the difference between the Kay and Truetone versions of these guitars is the 6-on a side headstock (most Truetones) and the chrome bridge cover (also on the Truetone) - JC

Here is a really cool vintage TrueTone made by Kay, I have this setup to be played with slide. It sounds amazing in open D, perfect guitar for this style of playing. Includes with original hardshell case.

  1. Great. Now I'm addicted to this fantastic blog as much as I am to Craiglist itself. :)

  2. My brother gave me a Silvertone 1413 he had in his closet for about 20 years. A little banged up (he said it was mint when it went into the closet). Turquoise (surf craze, you know) and different headstock but otherwise nearly the same as this Truetone. Needs a fret job but sounds really fierce.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


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.
