7 lbs. 3 oz. One of the cleanest examples of one of these we've ever come across! The maple top and back are absolutely gorgeous pieces of wood. The original Mallory pots all date 42nd week of 1960 making this possibly one of the last ever made of this super cool and fairly rare guitar. All original except for tuner buttons themselves which were disintegrating and had to be replaced. Recent neck reset and setup. Good to Go! The Kay ThinTwin guitar. The Kay K-161 ThinTwin electric guitar made from 1952 to 1960, was one of the longest produced guitars by Kay Musical Instrument Company. The K161 Thin-Twin was commonly referred to as the "Jimmy Reed" guitar. Introduced not long after Gibson's Les Paul, the ThinTwin was a semi-hollow body guitar and larger than its name "thin" implied. The guitar's body was 2 3⁄4 inches (70 mm) deep. "ThinTwin" was a reference to the unique appearance of the dual pickups, having a very slim profile.
