Kent brand guitars were made in Korea and Japan during the 1960’s for distribution in the USA. There was a full product line of Kent acoustic and electric guitars as well as banjos and mandolin. Some of these early Japanese made Kent guitars were built by either Teisco or Guyatone. Some time after this the distributors of the Kent instruments decided to go upmarket and had Hagstrom produce versions of their Solid Electric Hagstrom I, II and III and electric Bass guitars as Kents for distribution in the USA.
