Kimberly guitars were originally manufactured by Kawai Guitars (and pianos), located in Hamamatsu, Japan, and imported by Limmco, Inc., owned by Bob Seidman. The company tried to fill the void left by the discontinuance of the Kay & Harmony trademarks. Photographic evidence of a Kimberly- branded May Queen (yes, that infamous Teisco model!) arrived at the offices of the Blue Book of Electric Guitars in the 1990s. Current production of guitars under the Kimberly trademark is the Kimex Trading Co., Ltd. of Seoul, Korea. Kimex produces a number of guitar and bass models that favor classic American designs, and are designed with the entry level guitarist and student in mind. Source: Mr. Bob Seidman, Seidman Sales, Ft.
