Kay Model K5935 Deluxe Bass

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Our second guitar here on Guitarz today is also an American-made bass from the mid 1960s, possibly even from 1966, and is also from a brandname beginning in the letter K. This one is a Kay Model K5935 Deluxe Bass. Unlike the Kay Thin Twin bass from the 1950s that we looked at recently, this is a solidbody - it's slab-bodied even - and shares more in common with the Kay "Truetone" guitar that we looked at in September 2010. This bass also features what the seller calls a "speed bump pickup", I'm guessing because of the shape of the casing rather than it sounding like a vehicle scraping its underside on a speed bump.
