Kay Bass With Interesting History

Discussion in 'Basses [DB]' started by Vince Klortho, Oct 3, 2013.


  1. I ran across this ad in my local Craig's List page :

    See the ad for contact info and price.

    I normally don't do this kind of thing but it's rather fascinating I think. My apologies if this violates the rules.

    That's a very intriguing ad. Are you going to see it? ;)
     
  3. Probably not. I play the electric. I just thought y'all might be interested. :)

    I wasn't there or anything, but I would think that Marshall Grant was probably:

    a. playing a bass guitar by the time the San Quentin concerts took place.

    b. brought his own instrument in with him.

    It's still a cool story though if it's true where they came from. The rest might just be BS to try to trump up a price.

    Yeah, the bit about Grant playing the bass with Cash is specious sales BS - photos from the show at San Quentin show an electric bass guitar.

    That's the best looking institutional bass I've ever seen...from a prison, no less?:rollno:

    I noticed that, too. No teenagers in San Quentin, maybe? ;)

    Gees, that bass looks better taken care of than most school basses I've seen.

    I have to wonder if that stamp on the inside is from a custom made stamp duct taped to a thin metal rod or something.
     
  10. It's been speculated that the stamp is likely fake.
