Re: Vintage Kay mandolins
AS the previous poster said, there's a great variety of Kay models available, and some are closet treasures, while others were never much to begin with. if there's a particular instrument you're interested in, you'd need to provide pictures to get an assessment.
I have a great Kay; one of my beginning mandos in the 1970's was a not so great Kay.
