    Had some unexpected expenses pop up an need to sell this bass... it's not one I'd like to part with under normal circumstances as it is one of the finest instruments I own.:crying:

    1984 Ken Smith BT- Dovetail neck joint- built by Vinny Fodera- the neck on this is IDENTICAL in feel and construction to my 85 monarch.- it is to die for- Ken Smith pickups, Haz Lab preamp with active/passive and phase switch. Ebony board, Schaller pegs, Walnut top,maple core. Bass has a nice even sound- to my ears it is much more useable the some of the over the top mid focused smiths- Ive used this for rock, jazz and about everything else and it always sits great in the mix and cuts through- to my ears ( and in feel) this bass is pretty much a fodera with a ken smith pickups and emblems on it.

    Bass is very clean- truss is perfect no issues- only some signficant tarnishing on orginal bridge- but everthing works as it should

    I need $3000 in my for it-
    Trade interests include sadowsky
    Pus cash, r bass some 70s fenders USA spectors
