For Sale: 1969 Kay C1 by Timothy (unbrokenchain@email.com)
This is a 69 Kay C1 3/4 bass, mostly great shape with a couple old repairs. Can be played as-is, I did so for a year and a half of steady gigging, but could really benefit from a neck reset and new (or shimmed) fingerboard. Comes with a piezo pickup, brand unknown. Strung with Spirocore Weichs. Bass sounds amazing, can find some audio samples or make a demo if youre interested.

For Sale: Kolstein Travel Bass by Michael (mmontgomery64@mac.com)
Kolstein Prescott Busetto Model Travel Bass, built in 2009, maple back/sides, fir top, 40" scale, 5" deep, excellent condition.

For Sale: 1940 Kay O-100 by Graham (grahamtyson@hotmail.com)
Youve heard the stories about the doghouse bass that used to get strapped to the top of station wagons back in the 40s and 50s to go play gigs. Who knows who may have played alongside this thing? I know that for me, I have thoroughly loved learning more and more about playing music with other people by playing this instrument. I have had it about 10 years, purchased in Cincinnati. The guys at a reputable shop there called the Bass Cellar did some work on it, planing out the neck to remedy dead spots, and changed the shape of the bridge to allow for better pizzicato action. Its just plywood. But... It is plywood that has that signature shape of an old Kay, and it has the warmth in its tone that only 70+ years of thumpin can do. Will be happy to move this thing back up north, but we are moving soon, and if there is another player in the area who wants to make this thing sing, Ill gladly pass it on. I have probably played 50 gigs on this, before switching back more to electric (and lately, not much of any!) Included is a large gig bag which makes it safe & easier to carry - from Gollihur Music, a bow in good shape, and a K&K Golden Trinity system pickup (pads on the bridge to pick up the vibrations, and a mic mounted near f-holes, and a pre-amp to blend between the two). Model is an O-100 Orchestra model, and its got the real deal steel strings on it. Year of make appears to be 1940 based on serial #. Here are a few videos of how it sounded about 10 years ago, shortly after I got it. Sound is better on the ones shot inside: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL747D5A2D448235AF
