Kay M1B 3/4 Upright Bass 1954


SOLD. Call us for options.

There's been a upswing on vintage Kay Uprights over the past few years, and after having this Kay M1B Upright Bass 1954 around we can certainly see why! A Spruce ply top with Flamed Maple plywood back and sides make this M1B a killer doghouse, bluegrass, Americana, folk, you name it double bass. The slim profile neck combined with a 42" scale lengh gives you plenty of access to really dig in and cut through a band. Here in Very Good condition, there's play wear on the neck and heel, along with a few dings and scratches -nothing that effects the playability or tone of this vintage bass. Gigbag included.

  • 3/4 Body size
  • Spruce plywood top
  • Flamed Maple plywood back and sides
  • Gold plated tuners
  • Slim Neck profile
  • 42" Scale length
