1940's Kay Sherwood Deluxe in St. Paul Minnesota for $450

This seller is offering a Sherwood Deluxe.  I've seen these for sale at Elderly and other vintage guitar sites and they usually fetch at least a grand or more.  The Sherwoods are known for being well made guitars - they were one of Kays high end lines, and from what I've seen about this model it should have a solid spruce top and maple back and sides.  The fact this seller has had the neck reset and refretted is a HUGE bonus to any buyer.  He's even had a regular 1/4 output jack added since these would have originally had the screw on type output similar to the old Supro lapsteels and some vintage microphones.

Vintage Kay Sherwood Deluxe Electric Archtop - $450 (St. Paul)

Kay made a lot of guitars with other brand names; although many of their instruments were extremely budget-oriented, this one is one of the deluxe models, marked as a Sherwood Deluxe. My guess is that this is a guitar from the 40s. Check out the awesome headstock, and the gorgeous yellow body. Real pearl inlay on the fretboard, and a huge carved rosewood pickup cover. This one has had a professional neck reset, refret and overall restoration to get it playing just right. It is now setup with flatwound strings, and it plays really nice. It has a big and balanced acoustic tone, and sounds even better plugged in. Would work well for jazz, early country, rockabilly, blues, or just about anything that calls for that old-school archtop tone. Call for more info at six five one ***-****.
