Greetings Bassland, I recently perchased a 48' Kay C-1 that is a real fixer upper. It has gut strings, original wood stub end pin, and the fingerboard needs to be plained. The worst of it is that the glue is falling appart. I took it to a local repair guy and he said that he would not be able to take the top off on a plywood bass and if anything needed reglueing on the inside it would rattle. He said that he wouldn't be able to get inside the bass and it would always rattle. Is there anything I can do or is it junk? Thanks!
