What Customers have said about this Bass: K162V “Pro Bass”

I cannot express in words the joy and happiness I am feeling right now!!! I will be gigging this bass next Friday night! The action and sound reminds me of the Beatle’s bass!  Well done gentlemen!!

Meet your guitar: K162VB
Serial #K1811150 is one of 131 built from 2008-17

The Kay Vintage Reissue Pro Bass, is a limited run and is in very short supply, the factory has fewer than 5 new instruments available.
Please Note: Used K162V Vintage Reissues have been offered at prices that are over MSRP and are trending upward due to their collectability and limited production.

The Kay Pro Bass comes shop adjusted, with vintage wood hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity showing the Serial Number and Date of Production. If you have considered owning this instrument this is the time before they are gone.

The K162VB Kay Pro Electronic Bass Guitar is a reissue of the classic K162, has the volume and bite of an electric bass guitar, but when plucked softly, sounds like an upright bass.

Solo and rhythm effects are unlimited. Get that unique Chicago-style jazzy blues sound from the semi-hollowbody chamber design and single-coil "blade" pickup.

A special dual-capacitor switch kicks the Pro Bass into overdrive. It cuts the high range and adds punch and the deep tone of a standup bass.
