Kay Hollowbody Bass Model K162 1957 (consignment)  SOLD

Today we’re looking at a wonderful Kay Hollowbody Model K162 bass from 1957, in original condition. Kay introduced the Model K162 Bass in 1952 in response to Leo Fender’s 1951 Precision Bass, making it the second electric bass produced. The K162 was the first hollowbody bass produced, years before Gibson used the basses in their recently-purchased Epiphone line to enter the electric bass (EB) market.

This model became known as the “Howlin’ Wolf” bass because it was used by the Wolf’s bassist, Andrew “Blueblood” McMahon.
