Wholly cow...I found this at a local store today. The headstock label says "Rex" but it was made by Kay(I think). It has the biggest neck I have ever seen on a guitar.

What model is this? It has a Kay K141 type body a Kay K136 type pickguard a tone switch like a Harmony H44.





Look at the neck compared to the "50s" neck on my Les Paul.It's a nice guitar.It is all original except for the tuner buttons.It plays well, the action is good and all the electronics and hardware work like they are supposed to.

You should name it Fister Roboto since it is hung like a horse. Very Happy Dat neck.

Looks like it may have seen a talent show or a battle of the bands in the sixties. Cool

Very cool, let me know if you sell her.

What happened to all the Walter Keane photos?
