I bought this today off craigslist. It was being sold by a guy who knew nothing about guitars. It was advertised as "old guitar." I thought I knew what it was, an Old Kraftsman (Kay) built in the late 40s or early 50s. Most were built by Kay but in 1936 and 1937 they were built by another company. Gibson. He took it to the local guitar shop and they told him it was built in 1936 or 1937 by gibson based on the F-hole cut, mother of peral inlays, and bindings. Kick ass! For $25 I am now the owner of a pre WWII Gibson built archtop acoustic guitar. I want to do some double checking on the authenticity of that statement, but if the shop was correct, this guitar is awesome. It needs some TLC because the back is rough and the set neck is starting to separate but that's nothing too bad. It's also missing the pick guard. I had the same problems on my Kay parlor guitar from the '50s so I've done that type of work before. In good shape (mine will never be any good really) the gibson built ones are worth north of $1000.
