Ken Smith has long been a pioneer in electric bass technology combining innovation with top notch materials and impeccable craftsmanship. This BSR5M 5 string bass is a great example of a handcrafted premium quality bass. The body features a maple center with flame maple wings for a bright tone. The 34 inch scale bolt on 3 piece laminated maple neck features a pao ferro fingerboard. Dual humbucking soapbar pickups are hooked to custom Ken Smith active electronics for a ton of tones.  A solid Smith QSR bridge, Smith designed tuners, and a scalloped brass nut round out the hardware. Other cool features include the “coat of arms” headstock volute for strength and a matching headstock overlay. Natural varnish over oil finish. A very, very nice premium 5 string bass.

This bass has nice tone and feel. The low B string isn’t flabby like many basses. The pickups sound and work great. Condition wise this bass has been PLAYED. It has seen many a gig and it shows. Lots of finish wear on the front. Belt buckle, dents, dings, finish worn off: it’s a player’s bass. Collectors need not apply. Very vibey road warrior look. Comes in original hardshell case.

Ken Smith basses are hard to find and command a premium when they do turn up. Top notch quality demands a high price! A new one would cost you over $3000.00. I’m pricing this one so it will go into the hands of a worthy player. SOLD!
