    Hey guys, just picked up an old Kay (I was told it was a 53') but looking through here I found there are several different models, any help/insight is greatly appreciated.
    This is the only pic I have on my phone at the moment (at work), I can and will post more photos after I get home.
    Thanks in advance! :) ImageUploadedByTalkBass1385176424.603844.jpg

    Figured out what model it is, it's a C-1. Serial number 50315. Did I make out alright putting 1400 on it?

    Yes, 1400 is a good deal on that bass provided its all there and is playable.

    It's all there, the shop I got her from and go to regularly threw in a free setup and new set of strings, just gotta wait for the strings to come :)

    Are you sure it's a 3/4 size bass? Either you have a huge door or that bass is a bit small.

    Just making sure...man, those are some big doors!

    Your bass looks like a bone-stock 'late-period Kay. Not too beat up, nice rosewood fingerboard.

    I love those doors. Makes carting gear in and out a breeze!
    It was bone-stock. Until I changed the strings! Lol
