    Kay 162V Pro Hollowbody - $2,249 shipped/Paypalled CONUS

    NOTE: I forgot to mention previously that I added Schaller Strap lock studs

    --The very rare handmade by Roger Fritz in the good 'ol USA version of this bass - not to be confused with the Chinese-made Kay reissues.

    --I am the original owner and the bass was purchased directly from Mr. Fritz. In fact this bass was shown at NAMM in the year that he brought the Kay line back. I forget exactly when, but it's been several years or so.

    --It's never left the house.

    --Comes with the original two-tone case.

    --Functionally perfect. Cosmetically, there are a couple strap marks on the upper bout where you can see me pointing. Because of the slope of the bout, close strap proximity is unavoidable.

    --Fantastic-sounding short-scale hollowbody that you're gonna love playing, as I have.

    No trades please.

    There's some dust and plenty of reflections in the pics, like what you see to the left of the bridge, for example. There's nothing there - reflection. So feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to answer as best I can. Thanks!!!

  6. If you 've ever wanted one of these or an original Kay, this is the one . I have a Roy Buchanon Bluesmaster Tele built by Roger and it 's one of my favorite guitars.

    I have the Reissue version of this bass. If you love old school thump this is the one. In the studio nothing touches the tone this bass has. Anything I am recording that does not require a 5 string gets the Kay. That's how good it is.
