    FS: Ken Smith BSR6EG Six String Elite Quilted Maple / Walnut Excellent

    $3650 shipped via UPS Ground, Insured to the contiguous 48 states

    I am offering for sale my Ken Smith BSR 6EG Six String Elite S/N 6EG222302F with original hardshell case and accessories.

    I am the original owner and I personally picked it up from Ken’s Factory in 2002. I have mixed feeling about letting this go, but its not getting the play time it deserves, because I mainly play 5’s and 4’s (my hands are small). It was never gigged, only used in my studio. This bass has a rich tone and a full, fat bottom, unlike any of my other basses. The ebony board gives it a glassy piano like tone. The action is ridiculously low w/o fret buzz. If I didn’t have another Ken Smith this one wouldn’t be for sale.

    No trades please. I need this to fund a gas purchase.

    Here are the specifications:

    Body:
    -Beautiful Quilted Maple Top, back and Matching Headstock
    -5 piece body with |Maple Top|Walnut|Mahogany Core|Walnut|Maple back

    Neck:
    -Macassar Ebony Fretboard
    -5 piece Maple with Walnut Stringers

    Electronics:
    -Kens proprietary 9 volt electronics
    -series parallel switching

    Hardware
    -Gold hardware

    Included Accessories:
    -Original Ken Smith Hardshell case
    -Original Ken Smith Strap and Dunlop Straplocks
    -Set of new Ken Smith medium taper strings
    -Original Polishing Cloth & Paperwork


    Condition:
    In light of a complete and perfectionist disclosure, I went over this bass from top to bottom and here is what I found:
    There are a total of 6 cosmetic imperfections that keep this bass from being mint condition. These are outlined below and shown in the pictures as follows:
    1) Head Stock ding– ~ 0.1” square
    2) Front Right body ding &#8211; < 0.1&#8221;
    3) Front left body ding&#8211; oval about 0.1&#8221; x 0.15&#8221;
    4) Top horn ding on&#8211; oval < 0.1&#8221;
    5) Slap Haze below C string (hardly noticeable)
    6) Near jack entry ding &#8211; <0.2&#8221;

    I Accept Paypal or Money Orders

    Thanks for looking

    Hey Slapinfunk,

    Thanks, I really love this bass, its just too big for my hands. Putting this bass up for sale has given me a chance to think about what I want and I think I figured it out. That said, I am editing my initial post to include other trades I am interested in.

    I have a great Fbass BN-5 that I handle well when I play a more traditional bass role, but in my band Im playing alot of chords and melodies on a tenor tuned BSR4GN while my bassist plays the bottom. In addition to a 6, I really think I want to consider playing a 5 tuned adgcf or eadgc.

    Anyway the initial post is updated with other trades that id like to consider as well as the BN-6.

    Thanks again for looking.
