With its 17-1/4” wide archtop body, extra-long 25-7/8” scale neck and large Kelvinator headstock the Kay Upbeat was a large and showy upper-end model. Today, these guitars are prized for their unique style and great sounding Gold K (AKA Kleenex box) pickups.

This example is in great shape and plays well thanks to a neck reset that looks fairly recent, well-dressed original frets, and a fresh in-shop set up. Electronics are original and in great working order, the pickup is hot, clean, and fat, and all of the guitar’s hardware is original (included those valuable Kluson tuners). Original finish throughout.
