1965 Kay Vanguard Triple in SF Bay area for $250

This seller is getting a little carried away saying these pickups are worth $150 each - but at $250 for the whole guitar you can't really go wrong if it is in good working and playing condition. He does say it needs a "truss rod adjustment" so that could be a red flag but from my experience these guitars are fairly easy to work on (the solid body ones at least).  I always liked the look of the teardrop fret markers on these Kays.

A vintage 1965 Kay Vanguard. Rare 3 DeArmond gold foil pickup model with working original selector switch. Plays well, but needs a truss rod adjustment. All original. Has some dings and scratches, but nothing too big and does not effect sound or playability.

You can google this model and see that they usually go for $700+. The pickups themselves go for $150 each.

My loss is your rockin' gain. No case with sale.

** I have taken $50 off the last listed price so the buyer can get the neck adjusted and all electronics cleaned. Got this price from Chris at Rocker Guitars in SF **

** Also just took another $50 off it as I am looking to sell it today **

Email if interested. Thanks!
