    Cosmetic condition: 9 out of 10. No noticeable scratches*, no gouges, no nicks.
    *you literally have to look hard and hold the guitar at an angle to the light to see some very very fine micro-scratches under the smallest (1st) string...but not noticeable when looking at
    the bass have to actually look for the scratches.
    Neck is warps. Electronics work fine. Bridge works fine.
    The bass will come with the internal form fitted hard foam part of the original Conklin case (the Conklin cases have an inner form-fitted foam shell surrounded by a nylon type bag with handles. The nylon bag with the handles fell off, leaving the hard/foam form fitted shell. This shell can be placed into a new wood case if needed. I personally used a separate hardshell guitar case on the few occasions I did take it out of the house as I felt it was better than the original Conklin case.
    Willing to trade for the following basses (+ or - any $$$ for cash value differences):
    =Fender 5 string jazz bass (white body with maple fretboard)
    =Sire V7 five string bass (white body with maple fretboard)
    =Peavey TL5
    =or any other 5 or 6 string basses such as G&L, Music Man, Bass Mods, Ken Smith, Tobias, etc (no Ibanez, Washburn or Dean basses please).

    Hello there...
    What do you mean by a "partial trade"? Also, can you please send me pictures of your Ken Smith Proto J? Close ups as well as short distance away so I can see the whole bass from headstock to bottom of body.
    Thanks :)

    @drdog, Can't PM you for some reason. Wanted to ask about an alternative item for trade, if this is still even available. Long shot but you don't know if you don't ask so...
