    It's time to let go of my KSD. I've got bad gas for a 4 string jazz and I can't keep both basses.

    Retail on this bass is $995, I paid $768 last year from BassNW, and she can be yours for $500 + shipping.

    Here are some specs:

    Natural Finish over Ash Body
    35” scale Maple Neck
    Bound Maple Fingerboard w/ Block Inlay
    Vintage "J" Pickups
    9V Active B.T. Circuit and Passive switch

    The bass is in great shape, everything work just fine. The action is low and could still go a bit lower. The neck joint is nice and tight. The KSD has a great 70's jazz bass tone. I can email you recordings of the bass if you're interested.

    I take PayPal or postal Money Orders. For PayPal you cover the small surcharge.

    I've sold a few things here on TB and have nothing but positive feedback. Check it out for yourself.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Damn I wish I could buy this bass. It would be a perfect match for my 75 reissue.

    Great price. If I didn't want a Joe Osborne 5'er so bad, I'd jump on this quickly.

    I've got this bass priced to sell. I'll always give a good deal to TBers because I know its going to a good home.

    I don't have a good scale to weigh it. It is heavier than my Smith BSR5MW and my Fender P, and lighter than my old Warwick Corvette 6er. It's not stupid heavy, but it's not light either. It has a really solid ash body. I'm sure that adds some weight, but it also give it that 70's tone. I'm able to play 3 to 4 hour gigs with.

    I have a Pro Tec case that I use for the KSD. I was planning on keeping it, but if you really want it we might be able to work it into the deal. It is in great shape and fits the KSD nicely. There aren't many cases that will fit the KSD. It is longer than most basses with its 35" scale and long headstock. Here's a link to the PRO TEC website if you want to read more about the case. They sell new for $79 at music123.

    The KSD is still for sale.

    A like new Pro Tec case can be added to the deal for an extra $50.

    Someone should buy this at a price like this.

    For $550 you get a case and a seriously cool jazz bass with blocks!!
