This is a Silvertone 1369L (Thin Twin: Jimmy Reed model), sunburst, semi-hollow body, electric guitar made by Kay of Chicago, IL between 1957-1958. The "Thin Twin" models were offered between 1955 and 1958 in the Sears catalogs. The 1955-56 models had a white engraved headstock while the 1957-58's had black.
