This Kay Barney Kessel was made in the USA in 1959. The "Jazz Special" variant of the Barney Kessel is the largest and most ornate. This example is in very clean condition and all original. This guitar is in good playing condition and sounds great. These guitars have a unique truss rod design in which the truss rod is adjusted by a nut that is in the heel of the neck. On this guitar, the threaded screw that the nut goes on has broken, and while the truss rod continues to do its job by keeping the neck straight, it is not adjustable. This guitar weighs 7 pounds 6 ounces and comes with the original case in the pictures.
