    I haven't touched this in a year, and I have too many other instrument (and other) restoration projects going on... so out it goes, at a significant loss.

    1. Kay bass body that had been sprayed with purple metalflake lacquer. The top is 90% stripped, the back about 3/4, I think, and the ribs are just starting to be stripped. The top actually looks like solid wood, though I'm pretty sure it's a laminated top.

    2. New Englehart/Kay neck

    3. New Englehart/Kay rosewood fingerboard

    4. Original Kay tuning machines

    No bridge or endpin... well, I can supply an endpin that doesn't fit.

    $325 firm- I have over $500 invested in this- or swap for an interesting musical instrument, amp, boat, or what have you. Pickup only: Detroit suburbs.

    SOLD!

    Thanks to Tom, who drove 4 or 5 hours to pick it up, and who stayed for a cup of tea and some bass talk. Good luck with your restoration.

    Thanks Mike, I'll put pictures of the restoration up somewhere for everyone to see (if it turns out well :))
