The sort of guitar that causes fights in the office, this vintage 1960’s Kay K-562 Speed Demon is a painfully handsome reminder that guitar design back in the day was the Wild West, and that things were at their grooviest. The sort of thing that wouldn’t get made today, the K-562 will have you tossing out your digital workstation and plugging in the hardest, least-forgiving fuzz you can find so you can throw down some ratty scuzz in your mates’ basement. Everything is here - a hollow, Florentine cutaway laminate body, split F-holes, that incredible batwing pickguard, the lethal headstock, 3-bolt neck assembly, and more cool than all the instruments you’ve previously owned put together. The gold-fretted Rosewood fingerboard is completed by the aforementioned headstock with a full set of six-in-a-line open gear tuners, which itself is a great thing to see. At the body end, a pair of big single coils are wired through twin sets of Volume and Tone knobs, with a rotary lever on the bass side of the body. Apart from making switching pickups an event, this is a rather unusual and oddly handsome assembly, giving the K-562 a slightly otherworldly quality. The Speed Demons were a series, with three-pickup and single-pickup versions also existing out in the wild, and it’s rare to see them in this condition, so avail yourself of this graciously vintage instrument before it’s gone! Protected by a thee-year warranty with our racy techs, this 1960’s Kay K-562 Speed Demon is available at Wunjos with a gig bag as standard.
