Old Kraftsman (Kay) acoustic In Bloomington IN for $50

the seller of this guitar is apparently a bit confused (I am being generous) saying that this guitar was made by Gibson for Kay. But it is certainly an old Kraftsman, though I doubt it's anywhere near as old as he says (1923) it is probably from the late 50's or early 1960's. the black tuner knobs do indicate a fairly older guitar so that is a good sign.

THis is a 1923 Old Kraftsman guitar built by gibson for the Kay guitar company and sold in the 1923 speiggle magazine. This is a rare guitar very rare. Take a look online and google it, you will find maybe two of these acoustics and for a very high price. This one is a project guitar. You could string it and play it now though the action would be very high. It needs to have some work done on it and could be done at any utherie shop or if you know what you are doing you could work on it. There is nothing like the sound of 100 year old wood on an acoustic guitar. Please look close at the pics and do not reply if you are expecting a new guitar. This is a project guitar or a very nice display piece. Let me know if you are interested.
