    Up for sale is my 1961 Kay S-51B, also known as the chubby Jackson model, in a blonde finish.

    This is a players bass and it shows. I’ve done my best to capture that in the photos. With that said, it is structurally intact with no issues or necessary repairs. I have shown one repair of a crack in the photos.

    Currently the bass is strung with a low B, however I have also used it with a high C string and it sings. It is a true gem of a bass, and I’m sad to have to let it go, but unfortunately double bass is not paying the bills these days.

    For another $300 I can throw in an accessories package which includes a Gollihur Bass Bag, Bass Buggie (the BEST way to transport your upright bass IMO) Bass Bib, German Bow, Upton Revolution Solo pickup, Fishman Model B Preamp, and Reunion Blues Bow Quiver.

    I will be available to show/demo this bass after September 18th.
