This item has been sold. Kay Model K Model Electric Bass Guitar , made in Chicago, sunburst lacquer finish, laminated maple body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, molded plastic hard shell case. The Kay electric bass is generally considered the second commercially successful bass guitar, following quickly on the heels of Fender’s Precision Bass in Kay were the king of commercial grade upright basses at the time, and likely saw the solid-body Fender as a looming threat to their market.
Kay’s offering was a completely different design, using a shorter, thinner and more upright-like in contour neck on the flat-topped hollow cutaway guitar body then being developed for the Thin Twin model. This was perhaps a quick design decision, but made for a completely different-feeling and playing instrument from Fender’s solid-body and was in many ways nearly as influential.
The instrument was purposely given a more conservative, classy look than the “plank” Fender and marketed to jazz players at first. Often called the “Howling Wolf” bass his band was famously photographed with one , the Kay Electric Bass was officially endorsed by jazz bassist Chubby Jackson when new.

This, my first banjo, was a really inexpensive, difficult to play and terrible sounding instrument. Having been a Christmas gift and my being a complete novice, it was wonderful despite its shortcomings of which I had no inkling at the time anyway! Thankfully, I have no pictures of that banjo or me playing it. However it was similar to the one shown here on the right. This was my first really good-quality banjo. After about a year struggling with the Kay tenor, my father realized that I was pretty serious about playing and could use a better instrument.
Most banjo players I know like glitzy instruments. After getting pretty good at playing and earning some money teaching at the music store we ordered the Vega Professional from, I decided to step up a couple of notches on the Vega ladder and splurge on a Vox IV—each one custom built with gold plated hardware and uniquely colored designs engraved and painted on the creamy-white resonator.
It seemed to me to be the prettiest instrument ever made. I really beat the hell out of this banjo for close to five years but I seem to have no recordings of me playing it that I can track down. In addition to accompanying me on my first real professional jobs, his banjo taught me that, like drinking and driving, drinking and playing is extremely stupid and dangerous. I still, to this day almost 50 years later, rarely drink more than a single beer while on a gig.
When we finally got to Fairbanks, we were pretty dirty and reeked of wood-smoke after three weeks of camping along the Trans-Canada and Alaska Highways, the latter of which was still gravel in the Canadian section. One night we were in one of the local Fairbanks eateries and I heard the sound of a banjo from down the street, so my friend Mark and I investigated and discovered Gary Ryan, a really great plectrum player, performing in a trio.
