The Kay Jazz Special Electric Bass
Now Shipping - the Jazz Special K5970V Bass

In early 2012 Kay released the reissue of the K5970V Jazz Special Electric Bass.  The original version bass was actually featured on the cover of Paul McCartney's 45rpm single "Jet", played by McCartney on the "Ebony and Ivory" video with Stevie Wonder and was also the bass on the 60's surf hit "Wipeout".  It has a subsonic low end and very slim neck  for great playability.  Kay uses a feedback reducing bracing system in the body making this bass great for live performance as well as studio work.  This bass is available in Blonde and Black. 

This amazing bass was recently reviewed by Vintage Guitar Magazine.  Comments included "played like butter right out of the case", "thin comfortable neck", "worthy of any stage or studio",  They loved it!  Stay tuned, Bass Player will be reviewing the K5970V Jazz Special bass soon.

The body features a double cut design with curly maple ply top, maple ply sides and arched maple ply back with black and white binding.  The neck is one piece Canadian maple with a 12" radius.  The fingerboard is rosewood with dot inlays, 20 Jumbo nickel-silver frets and uses a 31" scale.  Tuners are Wilkinson 2 per side extra lite with cloverleaf buttons.  The bridge is a stud mounted rosewood bridge with adjustment wheels and a trapeze tail is used.  The Pickup is a single coil Thin Twin blade style pickups with individual tone and volume control.  The nut is a 1 1/2 inch bone nut.
