    Finally have been reunited with this little Kay K2B EB-3 copy after having left it at my mom’s house for about 10 years. It needed a good day or two of adjustments to get playable. It still has some fret buzz as the bridge is truly awful, but considering I bought it for $60 in a pawnshop in ‘08, I’m not complaining. Been having a blast playing it through the Hotone Thunder Bass :)
    I can’t find much on the bass’s years of manufacture, but the neck has “65 4 24” stamped on it, so stands to reason it’s a ‘65? Yet it’s a made in Taiwan, I didn’t think that started until 67-68?

    That is a cool, not quite a Gibson copy.

    For sure, definitely not trying to be a direct copy. The only ad I could find by image searching was from a late 70’s catalog that called the “famous copies”, so I guess it’s Kay’s idea of a copy.
