Kay Reissue BARNEY KESSEL Pro K1700V Originating in 1954, eventually becoming the Barney Kessel Pro, this was the first of three Gold “K” Series Signature Guitars. At 13” wide, this powerful instrument was created with Singers and Songwriters in mind. The K1700V Pro is the smallest of the three but surprisingly packs the greatest punch. The Kay Guitar Company has reissued the Pro and recreated this unique instrument that appeals to the “vintage” player as well as today’s demanding modern performer. Custom fit wood hard-shell case is included with this purchase ($249. 00 Value) About This Guitar: This guitar features a comfortable sized body. . . 13" wide. Short 24 3/4" scale for fast fingering and easy playing. . . same electronic equipment as the Jazz Special and Artist. Semi-solid construction assures "solid body" ruggedness and "acoustical guitar" response and tone quality.


We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage products as accurately as possible in our listings.  Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so.  We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is "normal" for the age of the instrument.  Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing. 

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear.  If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have.  Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
