    For sale is this beautiful 17 year old Ken Smith vintage shape in matte finish. You are not just looking at another Ken Smith. This is THE Smith you have been looking for. If you are into Smith basses, you already know all the BT models or vintage shape came in lacquer finish; this custom bass, however, features a beautiful oil matte finish, not to mention the 3D highly figured exhibition flame top.

    The bass is in near-perfect condition even though the wood got some maturity on it. It has been taken excellent care and you will be stunned when you actually see the bass in person. The top is 3D figured flame maple. When you change the angle you will actually see the wood grain changing as well.

    The body is Maple with Walnut core just like how it would be on a White Tiger Smith. The tone of this thing is ridiculously beautiful! If you are into vintage instruments, you would appreciate the fact that on an older instrument, under great care, the real tone is being shaped over the years. It beat any Smith's that I have ever heard and I can't explain the magic behind it.. It could be the perfect combination of wood throughout the aging process. All the electronics work flawlessly. The action of the bass is extremely low without any buzzing.

    I absolutely love this bass but have been playing 5 string basses for a long time and now I don't think I can adapt to this 6 string monster neck just yet.. so I think I will let this go so I can fund a 5 string Fodera. The bass will come with the original Ken Smith hard case and Ken Smith strap with straplocks. Also the hex keys and polish cloth, polish liquid is included.

    Lastly, forgive me for my English, If you are unclear about any of these things, please ask me so I can clarify to you. Thank you for your time!

    In deed. This is a very rare bass. All the BT models or vintage shape come in lacquer finishes. But this one came in matte finish. This bass is a custom one with highly figured 3D flame maple exhibition top. It would be very difficult to find something similar to this.
