Introductory notes: "With the ever-increasing prices of virtually every make of classic American guitar - the old joke used to be that you had to spend a mortgage payment to buy a good guitar; now it takes a whole mortgage - it sometimes seems that there are no quality instruments to be had that don't cost a king's ransom. Wrong. The Kay Musical Instrument Company of chicago made some remarkably good instruments in its heyday from the postwar era to the early-60s - genuine professional, superbly constructed and designed guitars. True the vast majority of Kay's student-grade and intermediate guitars were awful. But the top of each line, banjo, guitar and mandolin, especially the acoustic and electric jazz guitars and flattop acoustics, were meritorious pieces of postwar musical art. Unfortunately, even upper-line Kay guitars are largely unfamiliar to most players and collectors. So, this nutty little book is intended to engender an appreciation for Kay's upper level."
