1967 Kay Model K-5924 Semi-Hollow Body Electric Bass Guitar
Kay Model K-5924 Model Semi-Hollow Body Electric Bass Guitar (1967), made in Chicago, white lacquer finish, laminated maple body; maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, original two-tone chipboard case.
This very rare Model K-5924 bass is certainly a sharp looking instrument, visually owing little to Kay's older bass designs. It was described in the 1966-7 catalog as a solid body but is actually more semi-hollow, with a heavily chambered flat-topped bound double-cutaway body. It is fitted with a very slim non-tapered short-scale neck and two of Kay's older "speed bump" pickups. The most attractive feature is a lovely solid white lacquer finish on the body and neck, described by Kay as "Striking White". The body is accented with black-and-white binding on the edges. The fluid-shaped single-sided headstock and back of the neck are painted to match.
1961 Hofner President 500/5 Bass
This is a beautiful vintage 1961 500/5 president bass in sunburst. Action and sound are superb. New Hofner flat wound strings. Truly a preserved blast from the past back beat era. Neck is straight and is adjusted with a slight forward bow which is my preference. Truss rod and electricals are working perfect. Has rare type Hofner pickups. This type was not produced in large numbers. I have seen two others. A Hofner bass equipped with Type 3 pickups is rare, sometimes referred to as “cavern pickups” as Paul’s 1962 bass was exactly spaced. Plastic Hofner badge on head stock I believe was added but I'm not sure. There is a wear spot next to the pickup either from a pick or someone's finger resting there. OHSC shows it's past with great patina.
1960 Kay K162 Bass
Super chunky, v-shaped maple neck with thick rosewood fingerboard & large cream side-dots. Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear. Hollow maple body in sunburst finish with some nice flame figuring. Nickel trapeze tailpiece with a simple rosewood bridge. Single-coil neck pickup with large tortoiseshell surround. Master volume & tone controls with "cupcake" knobs & 2-way toggle switch. Comes with hard-shell case.
