Hi did you every find anything out about the Lyre sound hole guitar by Kay? I just got one and know nothing about it. Whats it worth? Where is the serial number located? I can't find it . It says" Kay musical inst. co." with a large K on the head stock. The guy I got it from said it was a 1938 0r 1939 but he knew very little about it. If you can help me with any info it would be very helpful. THANKS LARRY

ur bass's suck

ok...well i got this bass right..and from the tension that the stupid bridge was putting on the head..the head snapped .not like in 2...but like...part of it just snapped...like a big crack .and the same is happening with the neck..where the neck goes into the head...it wont let the bass stay in tune...so it sucks...

Re: ur bass's suck

No, it doesn't suck, it can't....
But any way, because I'm the proud owner of an great electric Kay guitar with original custom paint (white bleu, yeah...) I know some important facts about it.
Kay guitars are notorious for having bad neck sets and broken truss rod systems. Usually, this can be corrected by a good repair person for around $150 to $200.
And of course cince Kay guitars are old, they're more vulnerable than new guitars. So handle it with care, just like you would to someone you love. (not literally)

Anyway, I hope you understand why the guitar is in such a shape.

Re: ur bass's suck

Well Nikki, The bass "sucks" because it is old. The kay company went out of buisness in the late 1960's. Personally I own a Kay electric AND IT KICKS BUTT!
