About This Listing

American-made 3/4 Kay Upright Bass circa 1966 or 67'.

Model: S-1

Label was removed at some point, but all the characteristics point to the S-1 model. (Inlayed purfling, purfling around F-holes, ebony fingerboard and tailpiece.)

kaybass.com assigned it known S-1 serial number of 54492.

This bass is set up for slap bass and ready to play!

Includes a custom ordered Aubert bridge cut and fit for this bass and set up with wheel adjusters, original 'Kay' ebony tailpiece with intact logo, and a used gigbag.

In addition to cutting and fitting the new bridge, we also installed a new endpin, cut and fit a new soundpost, replaned the fingerboard, touched up the varnish, and installed a new set of Evah Pirazzi 'Slap' strings.

The button was replaced at some point, it looks like the varnish wore off of the repair, but it was well done and is not going anywhere. Ebony rib liners were added on either side for additional support and aesthetics. The repair work was well done.

Includes used gigbag.
