Default Kay's and Harmony's

A current version would be the acoustic or electric Epiphones, Godin's, the small body laminated versions. All great, these days it's hard to find a bad guitar it seems. But Blues is music, and a guitar is a musical instrument - what comes out is the mind of the player.
Have looked at but not played a lot of the Kay's and Harmony's. Any specific era and/or models?
