Anyone know anything about these units?

 

 

Well...the nut on that one seems to be missing a chunk under the g-string for starters. It looks like the neck has broken off at some point and has been repaired judging from those back pics as well. Confirm the status of cracks and past repairs before committing yourself, or you may end up with an expensive pile of lumber! Buying used URBs is tricky when you can't see 'em in person.

Kay was a very popular laminate bass company for a lot of country, rockabilly, and some jazz players. They made a good quality instrument. Engelhardt bought the factory when Kay went toe up and continue to make the same style basses with comparable quality.

 

I dig my (Engelhardt) Swingmaster.

 

All that said, I have no idea what is going on here...
