Orpheum (Kay) 1950's neck thru electric guitar in Long beach CA for $500

This seller is offering an Orpheum single pickup electric for $500. These Orpheums are similar to the Kay one piece guitars from the late 1950's that were similar to the Harmony H44 Stratotones. From the looks of that body, pickup and neck I'd say this one was made in the Kay factory. Orpheum is an old guitar brand out of New York. I am curious to find out from any players what these sound and play like.

I believe this guitar was made in the late '50's - early '60's. Similar to a Harmony Stratotone. Cool copper finsih that has faded a bit. The headstock logo is faded but still very visible. Lots of play wear and plenty of nicks and scratches. Everything works, sounds cool. I believe this guitar is all original except for the new strings, a couple pickguard screws, and maybe the output cable. $500 OBO cash only, no trades. Call or text James 562 ***-****.

Location: Signal Hill / Long Beach
