    He should've come up with a different headstock at least.

    Yeah, that last one... heh... it even said KS5 - but then Pattitucci?!? ***?!?
    Very-very unsportsman-like! :spit: :mad: Even the same headstock, the same pickups - if it were not for the G instead of KSB, it would be a bad case of falsification :spit:

    I've already alerted Ken. BTW, John played Smiths before he went to Yamaha.

    wow !! this last site is really pushing the limit of legal actions... body styling is a bit too close . i wonder if he got permission from Ernie Ball and Fender or Ken Smith ?? { not to mention John Patitucci }...

    check out the quality parts and electronics he's using , Gotoh bridge ,
    MEC and Bass Line pickups { also alder bodies , maple necks with figured maple and bubinga fretboards } :meh:

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Given the stated components/construction, my guess is that these things aren't cheap in price. As such, I'm wondering how much less you'd pay for one of those than you would for the real thing?

    I've always seen them as Ashdown and Pod knock offs.

    At least the headstock is different - though it looks like a Wal now... :meh:

    I hate it when people have no creativity and copy or make knockoffs
