Good Solid Vintage American Made Bass

1948 Kay C-1 Upright Bass Vintage American Bass.

The finish on this bass is original and chipped in lots of places.
Neck has been repaired well in the past.
Tailpiece is an original Kay with the logo partly obliterated.

Great sounding Kay bass, bug punchy warm sound that you just can't get out of a newer laminated bass.
It's expensive to get a new carved bass with this warm a sound!
