    BASS BODY 3/4 size. Violin corners. The coloring on the top and serial stamp seems consistent with Kay coloring/numbering, but the paper label inside is gone, and I am in no way an authority on these things, so I have no way to say for sure. Bass bar is intact AFAIK. No soundpost, bridge, frog, endpin or neck. Good candidate for Luthier practice or art projects. Local Chicago pickup only. 50 O.B.O.

    Is there a serial number either stamped in black ink or handwritten with a red crayon on the inside of the back near where the label was? If so, what is the #?

    The serial stamp is 14072. I found a pic of it and put a thumbnail in the original post.

    Very nice! A bargain price for the corpus of a 1946 Kay. :thumbsup:
