Custom Kraft Jazz Special 1966
Here we have a rare Custom Kraft Jazz Special 1966 made by Valco ( Supro, National, Airline etc.) in Chicago. Valco advertised this guitar in the 1960s as “The Perfect Fun Guitar!”.
Due to steel-reinforcement this neck is perfectly straight. Fun detail; Valco was very fund of their so called “perma-necks”. They even advertised with the slogan “Say goodbye to neck adjustment forever!”. Valco gave a five year guarantee on warped necks.
The maple neck has a medium C-shaped profile and the rosewood fingerboard features pearl dot inlays. The original frets are in near pristine condition. On the headstock we find the original open-geared tuners and the large Custom Kraft logo.
The Custom Kraft is equipped with a large single coil pickup. This pickup sounds surprisingly good. The original electronics are untouched and the CTS potentiometers date the guitar to the 17th week of 1966.
Comes with the original case.
