1958 Old Kraftsman (Kay) 2 pickup Vanguard in great condition on eBay for $299 BIN w Free shipping

If you are interested in these Kay USA Built guitars this one looks very nice and the price is certainly right. These are unique but very cool - especially for slide.

Note: eBay has changed its' picture file system so I can no longer clip and repost pics from their auctions - but I've posted a "file photo" of the same model. The guitar in the pic has an upgraded "Tunematic" style bridge which does not come on an original Old Kraftsman Vanguard (but it does show what is possible with these).

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.
