The Kay Swingmaster, along with the Jazz II model, was one of the finest, professional-grade instruments the Chicago guitar maker produced.
This all-original is in fantastic shape, features the three “Kleenex box” pickups, three sets of volume and tone knobs and comes with the original case in good to very good condition. Check out the intricate bindings, inlays, carved rosewood bridge and sculptural tail piece.
Most important, it plays like a dream, and on par with vintage hollow bodies costing thousands more. Frets have very little wear. Great action, tone and versatility.
The selector switch is four way, with the middle two settings the first or second pair of pickups.
It has one blemish between between the bridge and tail piece, hence the more modest price (without it this would probably be in the $1300- 1500 range.)
My collaborator Swede has given this the complete treatment: everything checked, optimized and set up for playing ewith new strings. All the eletronics and controls work properly.
Please feel free to ask any questions about this or any of our other guitars and amps.
About Automatic Jack
As with all the axes in the Automatic Jack Shack, the Swede — my guitar craftsman and partner in gear — has given this his full treatment, checking, fixing and optimizing all the electronics, hardware and functionality from headstock on down. Of course, vintage is old stuff, so bear in mind that this is a 40+ year old instrument, with the typical kind of wear and quirks that comes with that. We are dedicated to delivering the most playable, high-quality and modestly-priced guitars and gear we can. But we are players and people. We want to offer great deals and deal with great people.
