My and my friend had purchased this thing for next to nothing a few years back. He slapped some flatwounds on it and it plays great. Plunk city.

I think its a Kay or Harmony or something but I haven't been able to find anything online. Does anybody know?

I'm like 98% sure that's a kay. I swear I've seen it before...

My guess was some sort of silvertone.

The headstock shape, bridge, tail piece, tuning pegs and colour scheme look almost exactly the same as a super-old Encore I have. So, perhaps an Encore?

Holy shit that's the same guitar! Although it's in better condition than mine... I've never seen another one, that's mega cool. It's at my parents' house at the moment so I wasn't able to check the headstock shape, but yeah you're right, it's not exactly the same.

just noticed the bridge is identical to mine, except mine is missing the spring. I think you are onto something.

Excellent first post. Solved a mystery and left a couple of pics. You'll do well here.
