I just picked up an old Kay bass guitar--not an acoustic/electric, but a flat out acoustic. It's got a really deep body with an arched top and back, and a round soundhole, it's fretted, the peghead is a funny, flat baroque shape, and the decal says "Kay De Luxe". I would guess it's from the late-'30s through '40s, but that's an uneducated guess. Anyone seen one of these before? Anyway, it needs strings, one tuning peg and a few other little things. I don't have much experience playing bass, much less an acoustic bass guitar, so I thought I'd ask for advice. I realize that there are tons of "which strings?" threads, but this is a pretty unusual device; I couldn't find any posts that already applied. I play sort of '50s/'60s jazzy/loungy stuff, and I plan to use this bass for my home recording projects, miked with a big Oktava condensor mic, played through an old tube amp and recorded to my 4-track. I suppose I'll be using a combination of pick and fingerwork, for different effects. Given these parameters, can anyone suggest a good string or even a good type of strings? Thanks in advance.
