OK, I know its only a plywood bass, but it's special to me! It's a 1950 Kay C1, great condition. It appears to be all original parts, and therein lies my question. It needs a saddle repair and I am struggling with the notion of changing the "coat-hanger" tailwire or not. This bass sits in a stand at home and is only used for rehearsal or recreation at home; I have another bass for gigging/jamming. Is it always best to go for the best sound, or might the bass have a higher value with the original tailwire, since everything else appears to be original? Looking forward to hearing different opinions!
