Thanks J.D.

MIJ and/or MIK beginning in the early 60's thought to be made by Teisco or Guyatone. Kent was a badge for US distribution, not a builder in their own right.

The brand was produced by Hagstrom as well beginning in the later 60's - early 70's (I think) and the quality got a big boost accordingly. They can be very nice instruments as that goes, a number of acoustic models were badged Kent as well. Saw a hollowbody in a shop once getting a setup and by all appearances it looked to be an excellent quality guit.

Post some pictures if you can or a link to an online album. :up:
