Custom Kraft 1960s

Sold

Here we have a 1960s Kay made Custom Kraft Hollow Body. This guitar looks quite similar to the Kay K6535. Back in the day this guitar was presented as “A lot of guitar at a very little price!”

About the Custom Kraft 1960s

Custom Kraft guitars were created for St. Louis Music. At that time St. Louis Music was one of the biggest guitar distributors in the United States.

This fully hollow instrument is made out of birch. The neck has a chunky C-profile with rosewood fretboard and original brass fretwire. This hollow body plays OK until about the 13th fret and sounds great for slide! The action is a bit higher than normal. I would recommend a refret for optimal playability. So, the price reflects the need for a refret.

On the headstock we find the original single line Kluson tuners (expensive tuners). The tuners turn smoothly and work well.

The Custom Kraft is equipped with two great sounding Zippo/ Pancake DeArmond pickups. The electronics are original with untouched solder joints.

One of the previous owners enlarged the treble F-hole. We made a custom pickguard for this guitar which is true to the original. The new pickguard covers the previous Hillbilly “upgrade”.

Comes with a gig-bag.
