Picked this up free, on Kijiji. I think I can fix it w/0 investing in the full-blown neck rest. It's all "pressed mahogany". A good old archtop from Chicago, USA. It is playable. I am about to throw some Martin Lifespan Lights on it. At some point in the next few days, I'll take it to a local luthier to see if pulling the neck back after gluing the gap at the neck heel is not only a possibility, but a chap alternative to pulling the neck off and doing a reset. It's an old Kay, so investing hundreds of loonies isn't going to happen. Wish me luck. I have this incredible urge to add electronics!
