Here is another real cool segment of an interview I had with Steve Staples of International Vintage Guitars in New Orleans http://www.webcorral.com/ivg_home_page.shtml
This time he gives a nice review of a Kay bass guitar. It is a copy of a Rickenbacker 4001 bass.
One thing that I have been learning while having fun producing Authentic Guitar videos is that you do not really have to spend much money to get good instruments.
This guitar might not have the high gloss finish that you get from a new instrument, but the little bit of wear and tear gives it some real presonality.
Shucks, some people even pay to have their guitars " distressed ". Personally I do not understand that.
Here is a site that I found that is all about Kay basses and more http://www.kaybassguitar.com/
