    KSD - 4 String Ken Smith Proto J Bass (Hard Ash body with Maple neck). Upgraded with active 9v EMG pickups, hipshot tuners, bridge and nut (sexy black hardware now). Hard Case included. I have over $400 in upgrades alone in this beast.
    This bass is a Jazz Bass player's dream and it plays and sounds like a $2k+ instrument!

    As for trades, I am fairly open. I dont need and amps, cabs or effects right now.

    $700 shipped CONUS via FedEx ground insured
    *I had this listed earlier this year, took it down as we recorded an album with it.

    It weighs about as much as my Fender Geddy Lee, figure 9-9.5 pounds.

    I'll vouch for these- I have one with passive nordstrands, scrapped the active, filled the battery cavity and refinished. Easily as nice as the 2K+ ImageUploadedByTalkBass1416354914.488085.jpg

    Can any of you guys tell me if the neck on this bass is slim like a Jazz or is it a baseball bat? Big fat neck or narrow and fast?
    Thanks guys!
