KENT
Instruments previously produced in Korea and Japan circa 1960s. Distributed in the U.S. by Buegeleisen & Jacobson of New York, NY; Maxwell Meyers in TX; Southland Musical Merchandise Corporation in NC; and Harris Fandel Corporation in MA.
The Kent trademark was used on a full line of acoustic and solid body electric guitars, banjos, and mandolins imported into the U.S. market during the 1960s. Some of the earlier Kent guitars were built in Japan by either the Teisco company or Guyatone, but the quality level at this time is down at the entry or student level. The majority of the models were built in Korea. The address for Kent Guitars (as distributed by Buegeleisen & Jacobson) during the 1960s was 5 Union Square, New York, New York 10003, (Source: Walter Murray, Frankenstein Fretworks; and Michael Wright, Guitar Stories, Volume One).
