    I'm new to this sight and have a question. I bought a Kay tonight,serial #42361, and was wondering if anyone had info on it's age? I paid 500.00 for it and the bass is in nice shape. I learned on a Kay 30 yers ago and haven't played upright since. Any help would be appreciated.

    That serial number would put it in 1961, that's a great price for a Kay.

    Why the heck can't I find a $500 Kay in nice shape. I've found 5 recently and the cheapest was $2500.:rolleyes: . I've found a couple of King Moretones and they were both $1900. Oh well Congrats on the bass. Maybe it'll be my turn soon.
