A pair of 1950s Kay Jazz Special basses

Here we have a pair of Kay Jazz Special basses from the 1950s. With their hollowbody design they are a close relation to the Kay Thin Twin Bass we looked at here on Guitarz last month, the main differences being the doublecutaway body shape, pickguard, and the over-sized headstock with Art Deco styled "Kelvinator" badge (so-called because of its similarity to a Kelvinator refrigerator logo).

This pair are currently being offered for sale on eBay with a But It Now price of $12,995.
