Vintage 1958 Old Kraftsman Archtop Guitar. This Old Kraftsman Archtop is in fantastic shape. The finish on the the back panel and sides is beautiful. She has a few dings from 70 yrs of service, but nothing serious. No cracks or internal structural damage.The top is one thick piece of solid Spruce, Shes got some sound for you. I believe she was made by Kay for the Spiegel Catalog, some of the older ones were made by Gibson.
Very nice trim as she is bound top and bottom with the checkered purfling around the soundboard. She reminds me of the broadways from Harmony with her looks. Even the headstock is nicely bound.
Neck is nice and straight, and she had a full fret job as well. The tone is great, lots of presence and nice pure warm feel to the sound, no harshness or boomy notes coming through.
Shes solid and ready for another 50 yrs of service. She needs a good home. Let me know if you have any Q's.
