    This unique instrument was made in 1967 and is one of only 50-60 made. Labeled as Genuine Kay Bass Viol, Model B5, Ser # 55305, sometimes called a Kay cellobass or a Baby Kay. Kay took their 4/4 cello and fitted it with bass tuning gears and tuned *an octave above* a regular bass. The B-5 was originally made as a "jazz cello" .This instrument is in immaculate *mint* condition with no scratches, chips or dings. Purchased in 2000 from a collector in Seattle WA, it has not been played since purchased. It has the original set up, strings and soft case. A Collectors dream. Pics available on request.
    Buyer pays all shipping, packing and insurance. Asking $1295.
