: Looking for info on a 5 string Kay anybody have or seen one before.

: dont know about the bridge pick ups because of the 5th string.
: have seen a pick up that velcros to the underside of the fingerboard.
: magnetic style. anybody know?

I have an old 5 string Kay that I've owned since mid 60's. It had a cracked neck and has been repaired.
I don't know if I still have it but had a pickup that was a stainless steel device about size of pear (fruit) that was held against body of bass body and held inplace by rod that clamped onto bridge. I know I've lost the clamps, etc, but still may have the pickup. If I can find it I'll let you know a brand etc. Again it is over 25 years old and may not be available anymore.

Worked pretty well in its time.
