Kay Upright Bass

 

I am selling a Kay Bass Viol that was made in the early 1950's based on the serial #30902. Based on what I could look up on the internet, this is the M-1-B which is Maestro model in Blonde finish. It comes with the stand, nylon gig bag, and a bow. I purchased this for my son for jazz band, but he is sticking with the tuba, so I am getting rid of it. The bass will need a setup. The music teacher took a look at it and said it needed a different bridge and the sound post is missing, otherwise every thing seems in good condition for its age. The tuners all work well. If it were restored or even had just a little TLC with a properly fitted bridge it would be a wonderful bass for bluegrass, jazz, or rockabilly. It has various scratches on it but there are not really any dents and no holes. There are no cracks that I can see in the neck, but there is a slight gap where the neck meets the body (see picture). I will not ship this, do not even ask, so local pickup only please.
