I recently finished resurrecting an old Kay electric guitar. A friend of mine rescued it on its way to the dumpster & gave it to me.

Here is how it came to me.

Here it is now.

The pups, pots, & switches come from an old Teisco. The pickguard design is inspired by the Harmony Roy Smeck model. I cut the control plate from a brass kick plate.

I just finished soldering in the electronics yesterday and everything works! It sounds pretty good. I just need to get everything dialed in for playing comfort.
