The K5970V Jazz Special Bass has a long scale semi-hollow body and features a single coil pickup, rosewood bridge and fingerboard.

The Jazz Special Bass has been the most coveted Kay Model by collectors and is very rare, but now you can own a reissue of this classic without the inflated collector's item price tag.

It was featured on the cover of McCartney's 45-rpm single "Jet" and again in the video "Ebony and Ivory" and was the bass used the band, The Sufaris", in the '60s to record the hit "Wipeout".

This edition was developed and created by world-renowned luthier Roger Fritz. Known for its subsonic low end and slim neck as well as its woody tone, the hollow body construction and exclusive bracing system make this bass ideal for live and studio use. The headstock features an original gold "K" chevron displaying the 3-D raised "Kel-von-ator" style emblem. Truss rod cover has the Roger Fritz signature.  A luncheonette countertop pickguard gives the Jazz Special bass its avant-garde appeal. Includes hardshell case.
