1970s Kay acoustic with built-in amp and FX
I've not seen one of these guitars before. How cheesy did 70s (maybe 80s?) cheap catalogue guitars get? It's a Kay-branded dreadnaught-style acoustic very bizarrely fitted with a built-in amp and with a cheap speaker in the guitar's top. I can't imagine that doing much for its acoustic properties. The built-in amp section also features a tremolo effect.

It's so bizarre that it's almost desirable!

  1. My grandmother had one of those from new. She sold it, but I'd give my eyeteeth to have it back!

  2. I had one, but it got soaked in the rain and warp, beautiful sound
