I've got a Kay almost just like it. I believe mine was purchased from Sears & Roebuck but am not perfectly sure.

I found some information on the tuning pegs that led me to several websites and I found that those tuning keys (they are grouped in sets of 3) was made between 1944 and 1946. This date coincides well with my grandfather getting out of the army after WW2.

Wow, I had no idea it was that old. The tuning keys on this guitar are in groups of three and I believe they say KLU Deluxe. thanks for the help.
