That's what I thought, but I have also had people tell me "no, it only looks like a Kay. You have no Kay markings its a cheap student bass". I cant find any kind of match with the serial numbers. Also, I don't know if I am allowed to ask this, but do you or anybody else that reads this have a price or value they can place on it. I paid under a grand for it and I have put about 650 in for the repair job.
