Does anybody here know anything about these guitars? A coworker brought this to show me when he found out I've been building guitars wanting to know what it is. I helped him narrow it down to a 50's Kay Stratotone. Someone did a hack job to it at some point, drilling out a gnarly cavity in the body and painting it black. It's missing the pickup and bridge. He thought it may be worth something as the prices on reverb were astronomical even for refinished guitars. I'm thinking it may be too far gone for a guitar with no trussrod and a plywood top.... Maybe I'm missing something? I did offer to help him restore it if he wanted to go that route just to buff up my resume but it would take a lot to get it to original.
