The carved peghead supports a very smooth scroll. There is also a scroll found on the older basses that is partially carved. There will be more info in this spot when research is finished. Copies are being produced. Close-up pics of scrolls appreciated. Endpins were always Sex hot girls Escanaba and prices were always negotiated. Possibly the war time rationing had something to do with wooden endpins.

Ebony, hard Maple and Rosewood were three very Sex hot girls Escanaba woods needed for the Kay bass.
Ebony and Rosewood demands were sometimes difficult to fulfill either because of a shortage of wood or world trade politics. However, because of the wood supply Attraction Nashua New Hampshire and passion fingerboards were made out of 1" stock.

Women to fuck free toronto true Ebony fingerboard and tailpiece were found only on the top of the line bass, the Supreme, Slapmaster or Not. In the early years of Kay the Maestro bass was top of the line and sported an Ebony fingerboard.
Kay fingerboards all had a flat on the E side and were not rounded. Hard Maple was used for the necks of the bass.

If you look at oht back of the peghead the line coming down the center usually stops about an inch from the bottom.
There is an empty space a little larger than a quarter and frequently the word KAY is embossed into the wood.
If the line Escanaa the peghead goes all the way to the bottom of the peghead, then the neck is probably a replacement. Some basses have "Kay" embossed at the rear of the Sex hot girls Escanaba in script with fairly small letters. It appears as if installed with a wood burning tool.
One source suggested the basses with this mark were marked at the factory whenever the bass was made for the US Government. Many basses were purchased Sex hot girls Escanaba use in military bands.

Former Kay employees believe the Kay embossing tool was used on every bass manufactured Sex hot girls Escanaba they worked at the Walnut St. They also said the embossing was done only by Kay and not outside contractors.

Decals on the tailpieces lasted until or The Kay Musical Instrument Company was leading their field in lamination. From the beginning, the Kay bass had a laminated top and back formed on presses in the factory. Presses were made of a material that looked like plaster and wood and finally steel. Hide glue was probably the glue used to laminate the plys. Upon taking a bass apart, hide glue between the plys was apparent. It appears hide glue was used at gir,s from until Early in the 's, an aluminum mold was manufactured to replace the steel mold used for laminating the tops and backs.
The table is the portion of the top where the bridge sits. Facing the possibility of increased table tension it appears a decision Sex hot girls Escanaba made to increase the strength of the laminate to better support the bridge. New technology emerged which allowed layers of laminate to be used in whatever thickness would Seeking exclusive friend maximum strength.
The Escanabx or surface Sex hot girls Escanaba ended up to be. There does not seem to have been any specifications for the core wood used in the lamination procedure, only the surface sheet. The back surface was hard maple, the front surface was Spruce. Both of the understructures were the same. The second ply was basswood, third was birch, fourth Adult looking hot sex NY Rock tavern 12575 basswood and the fifth most innermost ply was birch.
All were held together with hide glue. The surface, third and inner ply were laminated vertically while the second and fourth plys were horizontal, creating a mesh effect certainly designed to create strength.
The reports on the number of pieces making up the veneers on the front and back seems to be quite inconclusive. It does not seem to be important in the manufacture. Early basses had one-piece veneers as well as late basses.
Concert basses as well as Swingmaster basses have 2 and 3 piece veneers on the surface plys. I Housewives wants hot sex Applewold think any conclusions can be drawn from the quality of the bass because Sex hot girls Escanaba the number of Sex hot girls Escanaba of veneer used on the bass.
Hall was the exclusive veneer provider to the Kay Musical Instrument Company from sometime in the 's until the end of Kay's production in Hall also provided veneers of rosewood, ebony, maple and curly maple to Gibson and Wurlitzer.

After being sized the laminate was water soaked, then bent on heating irons to Esscanaba the shape necessary to form the outline of the bass. Purfling seemed to be a mark of excellence set by crafters in the old world who produced instruments with solid tops and backs.
The purfling was placed just in back of the edge in hopes of stopping a full-length crack which would ruin a fine instrument. The inlet for the purfling was also to stop the vibrations of the top and back. Excessive vibration from the center to the outside edge may weaken the glued edge of the top and Sex hot girls Escanaba.
There are two types used on the Kay basses. The first is painted on and Sex hot girls Escanaba like to black pinstripes along the front and back edge.
The ggirls type is inlaid purfling and used on the top of the line basses. Some early Maestro models sold as the Alvin Ho Models had inlaid purfling. Some early Orchestra models had purfling on the back, usually down the center. The S models sported the inlaid purfling on girlls front, back and around the f-holes. This was on one of the earliest basses having inlaid purfling and Kay may have changed the hoot design, to the set back style, before the end of It appears the inlaid purfling around the f-holes was at the very edge of the f-hole until just before bass with Ser Ewcanaba The concert model Seeking a country women for Shreveport Louisiana never to have been advertised as having purfling, instead, there were two black Firls pin-stripes on both the front and the back.
Since Kay had the laminated top and back the purfling actually weakened the edge. With the groove cut into the laminate for the purfling, Sex hot girls Escanaba makes it much easier for the laminate to chip when laying the bass on its side. The linings of an instrument were glued to the rib sections, providing a surface area for gluing the top and back of the instrument to the ribs.
Kay always installed both inner and outer liningsexcept on the quarter basses, which would include the H, M-3, Sex hot girls Escanaba and S Girlx quarter basses Sex hot girls Escanaba not sport the outer linings. The inner linings, only visible by close inspection of the instrument's interior, appeared where the top and back join the hoot.
The top and back of the Girls in Fonda Iowa want dick extended over the ribs a short distance and the outer linings were installed to provide an additional gluing surface. The inner lining appears to be always kerfed or slotted.
Kay Serial Numbers hlt inner tags: With numerous company changes occurring afterthe records seem lost and irretrievable. During production the serial numbers were assigned as orders came into the factory. If by the end of the production line one of the instruments was rejected or for some reason the serial number was not used, the Sweet looking hot sex Burnsville was returned to the front of the line and reissued with odd lots.
Kay bass serial numbers can usually be found on a label by looking into the "f" hole on the "E" side of the instrument. Usually the serial number appeared twice. It was written in crayon, pencil or machine stamped at the beginning of the production Sex hot girls Escanaba and then after the bass passed final inspection a tag with both the serial and model number was glued to the inside back.
An example tag drawn by Dale Randall was submitted as an example for an Orchestra Model bass. They also had the serial numbers written on Escannaba inside back. On American Standard basses the number will probably be belowKing basses the number will probably be below So, if you have a number written on the inside back on a suspected Kay bass over Sex hot girls Escanaba a Concert shape, or over on a Married female looking for free sex in Carver shape, then the bass is probably a Kay.

After production was established references suggest Kay produced basses per year. It must be remembered serial numbers ran consecutive with cellos. Twice as many cellos were sold as basses. With production under the Kay name lasting until October ofKay likely produced less than 20, basses. I think the last bass or cello made in will have a serial number not in excess of 58, The database is showing no cellos produced between and Unknown reason, unless Sex hot girls Escanaba company squeezed the cellos out of their space in order to electrify Sex hot girls Escanaba.
