    Let me start by saying I love this bass! I swore that it would be with me forever but I need to pay for a custom bass that I just bought and since the Lotto let me down again, sadly, here it goes.

    Gorgeous, tight, exhibition grade quilt maple. It has every option offered. The neck profile is so nice. It’s the ultimate KS. Sound wise, it’s all Smith. It has the great woody tone that Smiths are known for and sits in just the right place in the mix. My sound man is going to kill me when he finds out it’s gone.

    The condition is near mint, 9.8 of 10. The only marks on it are a few clear coat dents on the back. Not scratches just light dents and only noticeable in the right light. You’ll see most pics of the back don’t even show it. The top and everything else on this bass is mint, LIKE NEW.

    Check out the new Ken Smith prices and you’ll see this is a great deal. Bass Central has a lot of them but you won’t find any 7x7’s as that option is now special order only on Elite G models.
