Here's my 1959  Kay "Style Leader" guitar. It's pretty much all original parts except the tuning pegs. Oh, and the strap buttons that I just put on. I'm also not too sure if it originally had a sun burst finish or not. The only pictures that I've seen of this guitar has it with a sun burst finish. 
None-the-less, it's a pretty rare bird and plays surprising well though it has a bit of 'fret buzz' around the 12th fret.

Hey, I have the exact same guitar, finish and everything.
My is in great condition, no scratches or bumps, no fret buzz.
Although I think the finish is not original, I think it looks cooler than the sunburst. I really happy I found one of these rare and unique guitars.
Seb.
