After 2 years, I finally got one. I have owned every bass from, Smiths, MTDs, Tobias, Alembic, Zon,....ect.... I must say this bass is my favorite out of everybass I have owned and deserves a club. As Club member #1 My bass is the 6 string single cut design serial #001 Walnut/Maple/Purpleheart/Bubinga body Macassar Ebony Fretboard Swamp Ash Body Wings Bigleaf Maple Burl Top Bartolini pickups with 5.4 circuit Hipshot hardware Scale 34" 18mm 3/4 String spacing Sodalite Stone Kudela inlay TONE!!!!!!!! The closest comparision I have is my old MTD 635 but this bass is extremely more articulate yet organic by that I mean, its not a Modulus or Zon articulate but rather tone derived from the woods used. Although I sold 2 Ken Smith basses to purchase this bass I have not regretted it one moment.
