Clearly a Kay....mid-60's I believe. The 3+3 tuners are decent quality replacements. I believe the Olson pickup is from Olson Radio but I haven't been able to find anything like searching around. I'm guessing it's owner installed since there is no volume/tone knob/s. I don't know where the jack is but the pickup looks to be a surface mount. Brass frets, rosewood (?) board....seems a little better than entry level.

Plan is to clean it up, set it up and let my girlfriend have at it....

I'm certain we have some Kay/Silvertone experts here that can fill me in. I don't have it yet, maybe later in the week. It was just to funky and cool to pass by.
