A stunning and rare early ’50s Silvertone Aristocrat model, this short-lived archtop was produced from 1952-1955. Built by Kay, the single cutaway, 17″ body features a factory single DeArmond neck pickup with volume and tone controls, as well as a split-block fingerboard inlay, and “Crest” headstock Overlay. A full and warm sounding guitar both acoustic and plugged in, this example features an added ABR-1 style bridge for improved intonation. EXC $1200
