Kay / K162 Pro Bass Honey Sunburst / Bass

The Kay Guitar Company has always been the major producer of guitars since 1890. Most players may not know that, in 1928, Kay was the first company to start production of electric guitars in the USA. From 1952 through 1964, The Kay Guitar Company excelled at producing quality professional electric guitars with unique designs and features.The Kay Gold Line professional series became synonymous with that rich gutsy Blues/Jazz sound that eventually became rock. This unique blues sound was not available from any other guitar of that time. For the past decade vintage Kay instruments have been fetching high prices and have had increasing interest from collectors and players because of the cool, campy look and that unique Blues/Jazz sound.The Kay Vintage Reissue line of guitars faithfully reproduces that sought after look and sound of the vintage Kay guitars of the 50's & 60's and are now available to anyone looking to have something really cool (KOOL) and social in their collection.
