About the Japanese made late 60’s Zenta / Jedson / Kay

This is one heck of a groovy vibe guitar.
Late 60’s made in Japan most likely for the Sears, Woolworths of the time by the likes of Zenta, Jedson, Kay etc. The pick ups and neck plate are identical to those on the small solid body Jedson I have in stock so although these were made in the same factory and badged accordingly to which company wanted certain numbers of each model.
Saying that, myself and few friends have searched for this particular model and there is not one we can find, some vaguely similar but none have the small low set F holes. So it’s quite a unique guitar.
It’s a great player, very typical of these quirky Japan models. The pickups are great full sounding , this guitar is a lt of fun and looks super cool.
The pots have been serviced, everything works as it should. The switch on the guard is almost like a bass cut, quite useful, although it has been cleaned it sometimes takes a few wiggles to get it engaged but generally it’s fine.
The body does have signs or use, some scratches etc and natural ageing to the finish.
Some tarnishing on the chrome. Currently the trem doesn’t have it’s bigs by type spring so it’s set like a hard tail at present until I get one. Also the arm is missing.
All round a great cool looking and playing guitar, lots of songs in this one!

Although every guitar is checked at the point of buy in for condition we try to describe as accurately as possible and with the nature of every vintage, modern, used guitar you will always find blemishes held in certain lights that we have not solely pointed out.
These are usually very small lacquer marks or polish swirls and you have to expect a margin of very light marks that go undetected in usual lit environments.
