I just got a Kay S-8. Looks to be made about 1950 and looks to be in pretty good shape, all things concidered. Took it to a local bass shop that I've had good luck with as far as set-up type work in the past, but this is the first time I've been there for anything that I might concider to be "major". The neck is begining to pull away from the bass, in the area where the heel meets the body, not a lot, but you can see the beginings of a gap showing. I was told that this repair will include installing a "dowel" to reconect the neck to the bass. Tell me, does this sound like the "right" way to go about an undertaking of this sort? Any input from you guys would be greatly appriciated, especialy from Jeff, Arnold, Bob B, Bob G (all hail) or Nick. I'm nervous, this is my first Kay and it seems like it's got real potential to be a great bass, has an ebony board and besides the neck problem, otherwise seems in good shape. I just want the neck problem fixed right, the first time, but this is my first experiance with a repair of this type. BTW, the cost I have been quoted is what I concider to be reasonable, that's not the issue at all, I just want to know if any of you guys think "doweling" a neck on a Kay is a good idea. Please help, I'm getting the work done this week.
