Impressive features in a more compact form.

Originating in 1954, eventually becoming the Barney Kessel Pro, this was the first of three Gold "K" Series Signature Guitars. At 13" wide, this powerful instrument was created with singers and songwriters in mind. The K1700V Pro is the smallest of the three but surprisingly packs the greatest punch.

The Kay Guitar Company has reissued the Pro and recreated this unique instrument that appeals to the "vintage" player as well as today’s demanding modern performer. This guitar features a comfortable sized body ... 13" wide. Short 24-3/4" scale for fast fingering and easy playing. Semi-solid construction assures "solid body" ruggedness and "acoustical guitar" response and tone quality.

This reissue Barney Kessel Pro includes a hardshell case.


  • Full Kelvonator gold dot luncheonette headstock overlay
  • Grover "Sta-Tite" machine heads
  • Pearloid block fingerboard inlays
  • Barney Kessel "Kleenex Box" pickups
  • Custom signature acrylic pickguard
  • 3-way pickup selector switch
  • Custom Reflector "Radio" control knobs
  • Unique custom "Crosshair" chrome trapeze tailpiece

If it was good for Barney, it'll be great for you. Order today.
