I have decided to sell my old Kay to finance another Upright Purchase. I hate to do it because it was my first bass, but you know how it goes. It is most likely from early 60's, and it has been painted black. I just recently had the soundpost setup, and put Labella Supernil strings on it. The bass is in good working order, and would be great for a beginner, but a pro might want to put some $$$ in it for a setup and some adjustments. It has been a good one, but I can't afford to keep her. Definantly ideal for Bluegrass/Rockabilly. I have a K&K Rockabilly pickup & preamp that goes with it for an extra $150. $850 for the bass, or $1000 for bass and pickup. Don't snooze this is a smokin deal and I need to sell ASAP. Sale needs to be around Dallas Fort Worth, TX.
