Kawai SD4W 'Hound Dog Taylor' circa 1964

Product Description

Kawai SD4W circa 1964, made in Japan. It’s hard to find these guitars in good playing condition, but this one certainly is. 

It is all original except for the volume and tone knobs and a replacement tremolo arm. There is a mark on the front of the headstock, possibly where the original badge was and the truss rod cover is missing. Apart from that it is very clean with very few blemishes and scratches for a guitar of this vintage. 

It is a set neck guitar, even though it has a neck plate, which I believe was designed to hide the glue seam. Despite having a truss rod the neck is quite chunky, similar to early vintage guitars with steel reinforced necks that had a bit of extra thickness to stop them bending. Having said that it is still really comfortable to play.

All the rocker switches function properly and all four pickups sound great. But how about that headstock? I love these oversized headstocks. 

If you are in Melbourne feel free to come by and try it out. We are still open by appointment, just call ahead. 

Comes with a padded gigbag.
