NBD - “Vintage” Kay Starter series; need help dating her

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by CATFISHMcC0Y, Jun 1, 2018.

    I recently acquired a Kay Starter Series bass. It’s a short scale with a p bass split coil in it. It was basically left upon my doorstep and I was hoping you all might be able to tell me something about it.

    My main questions are:
    Is the fingerboard rosewood or something I don’t know about?
    Are the electronics original (and should I even care whether they are or not)?
    Does anyone know how “vintage” this bass actually is?
    Any other cool info you might be able to provide would be welcomed.

    One other thing there’s a giant crack in the neck where the fingerboard is coming off (see photos). Any advice on how to repair it/is it repairable? I was going to use gorilla glue....
