    !952 Kay C1 Upright Bass for sale.

    Great condition. Original soundpost. Upgraded, ebony finger board and custom wooden endpin.

    It has a beautiful, dark and rich sound. Great Jazz or Pop bass. I've used it live and in studio. Acoustic or through an amp. It sounds great.

    Come with A David Gage Lifeline pickup. Strung with Evah Pirazzi Medium strings.

    The neck has a well repaired crack, from a long time ago, before I owned it. It has been checked by both Sprocket at the David Gage shop and Keiran O'Hara. They both say it's a very solid repair and it has never been an issue, in the 5 years that I've owned the bass. Please see pictures.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I live just north of Yonkers, NY. For a faster reply, please me at [email protected].
