20 minutes ago my wife called me from her cell phone to ask if I knew that there was a body of a bass outside. I ran to the window and saw a fairly intact bass body laying next to the trash can on the curb. I ran down and grabbed it and brought it in just before a thunder storm unleashed. I looked inside and the label says "genuine Kay bass viol model:c1 serial #28241". Its gamba cornered and round backed. Any help in identifying year? Its fairly intact considering it just came out of the trash, probably after years in a puddle in some basement. The front, back, sides, and blocks are all there. They're only partially glued and there's only half of a neck heel with a couple of dowels coming out of it. The front and back have no cracks, just some significant scratches and some mild ply separation. The edges are pretty good. There was even a remarkably true sound post rattleing around inside. Another interesting feature; there seems to be a round "sound post platform" glued on the back. Maybe to give a flat surface for post fitting? New York streets are amazing on trash days! If someone tells me how, I'll post some pics.
