New Kay K161 Now Shipping!

 The K161 Kay Thin Twin Electric Guitar was originally introduced in 1952 and was known as the “Jimmy Reed” or “Howlin’ Wolf” model. The Thin Twin was the first guitar to be able to create that unique blues sound from the special interior Kay bracing which made this instrument a favorite among blues players and both emerging and famous rockers of the ’50s and ’60s. The name “Thin Twin” referred to the two blade pickups, providing a clean, sharp biting sustaining sound unlike any instrument made. The Thin Twin’s hollow body chamber parallel bracing produces that gutsy, bluesy, raw sound, creating a natural distortion without feedback.
