70’s short scale Kay bass


What I have up for sale is a 70’s short scale Kay bass. I picked this up a few years ago in really rough shape as a project, with no electronics. Just don’t have the time to keep it going. I stripped all the paint, sanded, stained and clear coated everything. It’s not the best job, but it’s pretty decent. Picked up the pickups and all the electronics on Ebay from a slightly different model Kay bass so it all doesn’t fit exactly but it works. Pots are scratchy and could use a re-wire. Everything else on the bass is original. It is missing the second part of the pick-guard, the ‘Kay’ headstock badge, and the ashtray bridge cover. Strings are fairly new. I don’t know if the truss rod works or not as it appears the adjustment portion of it is either missing or broken off but the neck is fairly straight regardless. This thing could definitely use some work but does work and has a pretty cool sound to it. There is a case for it, not original but it’s a case.
