Truetone (Kay) Speed Demon Triple in Santa Monica, CA for $250 - Hey HUNTER check it out!

This post is for a reader named HUNTER who called me a week ago asking about a Kay Speed Demon. here you go - this one has some cosmetic issues but it kinda looks really cool. The pickups all work which is the really important part.

The relic-abuseed look of this guitar reminds me of the heavily trashed Kay electric that Jack White plays in the movie "It Might Get Loud." This ain't no beauty contest.

I have a 1950s Truetone Speed Demon its a beautiful guitar but its collecting dust and I rather is be played and used. They usualy go for 1000+ but just don't think this guy will go that much. Someone some where down the line through the years thought they should try sanding it but they stoped thank goodness. Someone that is going at restoring guitars can probably fix the paint in a jiff. All the wiring and pickups are good got them checked out it sounds like a angel. All the orignal parts are on it I have a aftermarket pickguard for it but didn't put it on so if your intrested email me maybe we can talk about a deal.
