This is a really fun conversion!
I'm pretty sure this is an old Kay or Harmony folk guitar.
It's marked "Made in USA".
I'm guessing 1960's.
The normal thing to do, string it light.
Well it's built like a battleship...played and sounded bad.
So I went a different direction.
Put on a raised Grover "Perfect Nut" plus really heavy strings.
Added a really funky foil pickup.
Play it acoustic (much more sound with the heavys) or plug it in.
Don't worry about the heavy strings, the bridge is bolted down.
Comes with original cream colored case.
Over 50 years old...both guitar and case in amazing condition!
