    Here's a rock solid '69 Kay C1. Never had a neck break. Recently set up with a new bridge and has had the fingerboard dressed.

    It has a patch on the lower E string side, you can see it in the pictures, it's solid and I've had it checked out by a luthier.

    All the edges are good with only minimal chipping.

    It has a very slim neck.

    This bass is ready to go and needs nothing. Possible trades on Martin or Gibson guitars.

    Comes with a case and a pickup installed.

    At least a few of these last Kays were stamped with build dates on the inside. Any sign of that on this one?

    FYI #57504, next to yours on the line, is stamped Feb 1, 1969.

    Good question, I'll take a look when I get a chance. At the moment I'm not in the same state as the bass.

    I have that problem frequently on stage.

    I've looked all around inside and can't seem to find a build date anywhere.

    Where in Tennessee? I'm going to be in Missouri around August 5 and again around August 19. Will I be able to see it then?

    Isn't Sevierville up hill from you?

    Got anything you wanna swap for? I've got several Kays I'd be interested in trading for an old American Standard.
