Regrettably, I need to sell these.

This upright bass is documented and registered on Roger Stower's Kay Bass site. S/N 1181. It is the only known K. Meyer labeled M-4. Great shape for 77 years old. No neck issues or break. I took the bass to Dustin Williams in Nashville for a set up which included a new custom adjustable bridge, finger board plane, new sound post, gut stings, graphite end pin, new tail piece cable, and some very minor edge restoration work. Comes with padded gig bag, Inglis stand, and original Kay canvas bag. $5,000.00

Mid 90's Fender American Standard Precision V. Fender strap with strap locks, Fender molded case, new flat wounds. $950.00

Ampeg SVT Classic head w/410 Cab. Recently serviced. All tubes, pre amp and power, are new. 300 Tube Watts. Great shape! $1,500.00

Prefer not to ship, but willing to meet. PM me for additional pictures or any questions. Thanks!

LOL! I guess I wasn't as motivated as I could have been. The old gal has a new owner who is a member of this site. I'll leave it to him to show her off at some point!
