IMPORTANT NEWS: We did NOT send out a 'Kickstarter' email!

SCAM ALERT
The spoofers are at it again - a couple of our customers have reported that they have received an email that might appear to be from Gollihur Music, supposedly from "info@gollihurmusic.com" (an address that we do not use or even have configured).

I strongly believe that it is a "blast" email sent out at random to a large random list, as the email address that one of our customers received it to is not even the address they have on file with us. So it's just a coincidence that some Gollihur Music customers are getting it.

In any case, Don't Donate - It's a SCAM. The supposed "kickstarter" link goes directly to PayPal, which is not how they operate. Please delete the email and know that it didn't come from us.

Kay and Engelhardt bass necks are made in bulk runs and do not feature hand-carved scrolls on their pegboxes. Instead, a maple "applique" is applied to each side, which simulates a carved scroll. They've pretty much always been done this way, from the beginnings of Kay, up until Engelhardt started making their Kay-styled basses in 1970.

We've been carrying the Engelhardt replacement volutes for many years; they're an exact match for the ones that Engelhardt has been putting on their necks for decades.

Roger Stowers of KayBass.com (an excellent resource for Kay Bass information!) did the painstaking measurements of the old Kay bass volutes some time ago, and has been selling them at his website for years. Having tired of going through the trouble to sell things on his website (which is a resource, not a store) he contacted me in the fall of 2014 to see if I'd take over the future manufacture and selling of the volutes. We are very pleased to pick up where he's left off, and sell these volutes directly to you!

These are ALL WOOD scroll pairs; there are three slightly different designs based on what bass you have. If you want the scroll to match up perfectly with the shape of your pegbox, (and be historically correct!) pick the one that is designed for your bass. The three models available are:

  • Oval model for Kay basses until model year 1952
  • Round model for Kay basses from 1952 on
  • "Plain" style for Engelhardt basses (all years)
See the graphic for actual photos of each model. Don't know what year your bass is? Check your serial number against our Serial Number List!

Volutes, as these scrolls are called, are sold in pairs only, as the nature and size of the volutes changed over the years, so a single one might not perfectly "match" an existing one from an older neck.

They are designed to be glued to the neck and finished/stained the same as the neck. (See the photo below for an example of the volutes installed on a neck).


Again - what you are buying is not an entire pegbox, it is the matching pair of "glue-on" scroll pieces shown in the photo above.
