    I got a few basses as partial trades when I was selling off all my bass gear. Among them, a Sadowsky NYC Will Lee 4 string as well as this gorgeous Ken Smith CR5V. The previous owner had it in the closet most of its life since he had too many basses. It has a few minor/hard to notice dings but looks like new.

    Specs:
    34" scale
    18mm String spacing
    3-band BMT electronics (9 Volt)
    morado fingerboard
    Figured walnut top&back/walnut core/maple center
    Will ship in its Smith teardrop case which is in good shape too

    This bass is set up with low action and plays effortlessly. It has that beautiful growly Ken Smith finger tone and a great slap tone too.

    The Price is $ 2850.00

    I may be wrong with top/back wood so any help identifying the wood is appreciated.

    Stunning bass and an absolute pleasure to work with. Alfonso knows his stuff and he is as good as they come.
