    Firstly, thanks for looking, but please don't contact me with trades, unless its a fodera.

    This is an awesome in amazing condition 5WTE from 2011. Here are the specs:
    5 strings
    Ebony fb with beautiful abalone inlays
    AAAAA flame maple top and back.
    5 piece neck with Flame maple center block.
    7 piece walnut/ tiger maple body
    Comes with 2 sets of ken smith taper core stainless steel strings and ken smith strap.

    This is an especially light ken smith IMHO, coming in at 9lbs 10oz.
    The b string is fat and tight, the best I've heard on a ken smith and the tone is thick yet articulate.

    Due to my perfectionist nature I have gone over the bass in great detail and will note in the condition with each picture.

    I had mine up 2 weeks ago and got the same 2nd thoughts. Dont do it......you will become ill with regret, cold sweats, and other psychological issues when the UPS man comes to take it away. Then again if you get your asking price you can go out and buy another one....heheh :bassist:
     
  16. All I have are trades so I guess all I can offer is a FREE BUMP

    Yes, I'd have a hard time parting with this one too. Free bump for a great TB'r to deal with.
