    1) I am offering a Ken Smith BSR M4 bass for $1800 including shipping to the US and Canada. The bass is active, with KS pickups and electronics. Natural swamp ash. Neck is Morado? So CITES does not come into play. Comes with a KS hard case and strap. Has Thomasticks flat wounds on it. Will include shipping. The bass weighs 7 lbs 14 oz and the Serial number is 4M93297A which I believe makes it built in 1997

    I may entertain realistic trades on equivalent value, as long they are well know makes that have maple fretboards, or a Maruszczyk Frog, but would probably prefer a straight sale.

    This bass is in very good condition, but there are some fingernail marks on the top - see the last photo. I would rate this as am 8 - 8.5. Neck had ramped about the 17th fret on, so I had a very good local luthier, remove the fretboard and shave the maple neck, before reattaching the fretboard. The neck plays fine now, but the serial number no longer shows. Photos of the repair are now attached a little farther down this page. The electronics work just fine. IMG_0701.jpg

    2) SOLD - Is a Canadian made F Bass VF4-Passive. The bass is about 4 years old and is a Satin Black/Grey color. It has an alder body and a maple neck. I find the VF neck radius more comfortable than the BN series. This bass is passive, has a great sound, is really light and fun to play. It is in new condition except for a few scuff marks which are hard to capture in the pictures. Price is $2000 including shipping in the US and Canada;

    Some photos of the work that was done to correct the ramp on the neck. The last photo is the serial number, before the ramp was repaired. 65D02805-A7CC-485B-A387-BC9AC5E167E3.jpeg 00F4C52D-810D-47DB-B28C-8A5CD53A07FF.jpeg 1EE844FD-BAC5-4E1D-8CF5-687A049B7B99.jpeg 8174BDED-263C-4F5B-B14E-3F994A64D700.jpeg 3F07B46D-184A-4393-983F-3FBBA4487716.jpeg

    Any interest in a Lakland 55-94 deluxe? LIGHT alder body, Cherryburst, tight grain rosewood board? 2012 build, methinks.
