    Hey gang,
    Pardon the multiple upcoming posts (I've got about 6 basses to sell), but I'm trying to trim down my fleet to get some cash to buy a holy-grail bass (the ONE) that has found it's way to me.

    Without further adieu, up on the chopping block first is one killer example of a mid-60's Kay setup with guts (Pirastro Carlos Chorda) and a fishman full-circle pickup.

    Pictures tell most of the story, but the proof is in the pudding. This bass can PLAY ! ( -- of the 5 Kays I own, this is the derby winner, for sure.)

    Nice and clean. Fingerboard well-dressed, bridge is pretty and fit like a glove, etc.

    Hickory end-pin, original rosewood fingerboard and tailpiece.

    Gig bag included, no bow.

    Let me know if you have any questions or want to see some more pictures! I can also post a youtube video of me playing it later so you can see how easy it is to play and how great it sounds, if that helps... ?

    Ships from Memphis, TN. Fed-Ex is pretty cheap here (roughly $300 max to contiguous US), but Greyhoud is much more affordable (usually about $150).

    $3500, and it's yours! Paypal is lovely, money-orders are, too.

    Thanks for looking.
