    Default Two Red Kents

    Kent 744 electrics aren't easy to find. When you do find them, they're usually sunburst.

    They also come in blonde, and I've had two of the blondes pass through my hands, although not at the same time.

    Even rarer are the white and red ones, but somehow I've managed to snag a pair of reds.

    Which is not to say that they're the same color. Perhaps the one on the left darkened with age?

    Anyhow, since it's unusual enough to see one of these, and even more unusual to see a red one, let alone two red ones, I thought I had better document the moment.

    There's a cool version of it on Zappa's Live at the Filmore East 1971 album. Flo and Eddie were in his band at the time.

    There is a cool red Kent here. Love them all. Until that 2018 post I don't recall I had ever heard of Kent. Very cool.
