    I've had a conversation with a seller who says he's had his laminated bass for about 20 years. He says he cannot presently send pictures but will work on that. The way he described it, it sounded like the marking of "Bay Instrument Company" was stamped in the plate of the machines, and he couldn't find a label or any other markings.

    Does anyone know anything about this? Is it more likely that it is a Kay & he's just not reading it right? Any info would be helpful.

    Some very early Kays have the name inscribed, and some have Kay inscribed hat peg tuners as well. Go look at it, or try to get some photos.
