This is a very cool bass, but Im getting ready for a move across country this fall and everything I own has to fit in one car(including my dog). So I have to let my non essential instruments go.

From what Ive put together this is a 60's era Kay KB-2, most likely made by teisco. 30 inch scale, Everything is 100% functional, but the pots can be a scratchy at times. The bass has a low-med action with the truss rod is backed off, and some slight shimming to to the neck pocket. This bass is very playable, and has a really rude/ low growley sound to it.

The last one of these listed since Ive been watching went for $215 plus shipping on ebay. So I'd like to get $175, and split the shipping, which should be like 10-15 bucks because I plan on taking the neck off so I can pack it better. Local pick is OK BTW.

Sorry about the Pics, it was an overcast day today.

more pics can be found here

But if any of you guys have any counteroffer's, trades, or any additional info that could be useful, then Im all ears.

Thanks
Steve
