1954 Kay K161 Thin Twin “Jimmy Reed”

$ 2095.00

The K161 Thin Twin is one Kay’s most revered models and was famously played by blues legend, Jimmy Reed! This guitar features a 2-3/4″ semi-hollow body, flame Maple back and sides, tiger-stripe celluloid pickguard and dual blade-style pickups. Very good condition showing normal cosmetic wear and all original with the exception of an added tune-o-matic bridge for improved intonation and resonance. Plays well with a very chunky neck profile and the original pickups produce a fantastic sound with a clear, woody character. A fine example of a legendary Kay guitar! Includes original hardshell case.
