I picked this guitar up in late 2008 and it has a market value of $160.50. It's an early 1960's Kent Hollowbody electric with single Teisco goldfoil pickup. Tobacco sunburst finish on body and neck with some crazing. Adjustable bridge and the neck is straight. There is fret and fretboard wear that has been touched up and one bent tuner (see pictures for items). As far as I can tell, this guitar is all original and complete. This guitar is in very good condition and only minor corrosion on the metal parts.
Kent was the brand name used by Buegeleisen & Jacobson (B&J), once a major music distributor in New York City. B&J was one of the early companies to begin importing musical goods from Japan in 1960, starting with microphones and aftermarket pickups, and adding guitars in 1962. Earlier Kents were made by Guyatone, but it's unknown who created this beauty.
