    Several years ago I rescued an old Kay upright from a garage sale. Some college kid had painted an old M-1 black with a textured finish (coulda choked him). I had planned to restore her to her original condition but with all the gigging and work I do, I just don't see it happening and my wife is tired of looking at it in various points of disrepair in our guest bedroom. I'd take $600 + shipping for it. If anyone is interested in it.

    Got any pics? Is the bass in playable condition? About how much do you estimate it would cost to restore it?

    The bass played fine when I disassembled it to strip the paint. I have no idea when it will cost to restore it, just know I don't have the time to do it.
     
  4. In terms of shipping - where are you located? Is there a label inside? If so, serial #?

    If it's at all possible I'd like to see pix - am very interested.

    Sorry fellas, she's sold to a real nice guy near KC (no shipping!!!) I'm sure Bob will do a real nice job restoring her to her original condition. Thanks for the interest!
