Kent bass guitars
I'm looking for a specific model of Kent, I have an 834, and I want an 836 mandolin, but what is the model number of the bass version of this style of instrument? If anyone knows anybody that has one, or any info on these, please let me know, these instruments kick ass, they are shaped in such a way that allows full travel of a fiddle bow across all of the strings, and with a small modification you can hit each string individually making for a fully functional fiddle guitar
I don't know the model number is, but I had that exact bass for a good number of years. A friend of mine had it laying around his house all disassembled and, after expressing some curiosity he said "If you don't mind putting it back together, you can have it.'' So I did and it was a pretty decent bass for a free instrument that took me maybe half an hour to re-assemble
I can't tell you what it truly sounded like, because I never had a good amp (just crap ones) to play it thru, but it was certainly a very easy playing bass. I likeded it
The guitar I have, has a badass 1960's sound, especially when using the built in boost switch, I wouldn't sell it for $10,000 even though it is only worth about $400, I need to collect the rest of the set because for a cheap 1960's sears catalogue guitar, it has the sound of the gods built into it, and The bass is model 833 if I remember correctly
833 seems to be right. Cf. here (scroll down): http://www.kentfoto.com/music/KentGuitars/varieties.htm
Thats a deadly site you found there, had to bookmark it
Kent model 833 Bass
I have the KENT model 833 bass, the model 834 6 string, w/palm mute and Bigsby style vibrato bar. Also the model 835 12 string w/palm mute, and the model 836 8 string mando. All instruments have all of the correct hardware. More often than not, as is usual for a lot of 46-47 year old (the KENT model 830 series violin shaped instruments, were only built for 2 years, 1966-67) Bass guitars, the bridge cover is long gone. Mine has the bridge cover. All of them are sunburst. I have the original chip board cases for the 834, 835, and the 836. All lined up next to each other, the collection looks pretty bitchin'! The whole works is for sale as a collection. I will not sell them separately. It took ALOT of years to find these instruments in this good of condition, and as complete as they are.
