    Hello dear TB'rs,
    here is a simple but amazing F BN6 with a nice Amber high-gloss finish,maple fingerboard and chrome hardware,
    i'm the third owner (first from Israel,second from the great Will Karling from East of France)and i can certifiate you that bass is incredibly mint!
    this one cost me more than $4000 in second-hand (dang! third-hand sorry),
    arff yes,very few superficial dings on the gloss at the back of this bass but very quietly invisible beyond 20 mm,

    my Graal for this trade would be a Ken SMITH BSR6GN Walnut (only long horns),an oooold dream or any other Smith near that one + cash in necessity, but i'm open for others high-end 6 or 5 and for sale too:$3550, let me know...
    3400lower price:$3200

    what could i say more?
    yes i'm living in Paris,Fr. but i'm very experienced for safe shipping,don't be worry about it...

    -2 pieces ash body with maple top,
    -3 pieces neck 24 frets and maple fingerboard,
    -chrome hardware with Hipshot B bridge 19mm strings spacing
    -F wood covered pickups and preamp,
    -fresh Labella Slappers 6 strings set,
    here is the pots layout:2 vol. the second one have push/pull for active/passive, general tone for active or passive and when it's pulled at the top the regular 2 single-coil pickups
    become 2 strong humbuckers,
    second row:3 band EQ,no cut only boost,
    the ergonomic body is well known of all,at last that neck is incredible easy and fast to play:width at nut is 54mm (for a 6 strings) and the profile is very thin all along the neck with a one enough round radius,
    let's talk the pics:
    (sorry i'm not a good photographer) CLICKABLE pics indeed:

    1) Is there a FS price?

    2) There is a used Ken Smith BT 6 Flame Walnut on the Low End site As of my posting it was the ninth bass down on the list. Brian definitely does trades, too.

    I'd love to own this bass. But for now, here's an F-Bump for a six-string bass lover from the great city of Paris.

    A lot of thanks to you Kevin!!!:)

    well in last issue the FS price could be $3550,yes i know that converting Euro to Dollar is not in your favor...:rollno:

    Yes i've seen the nice K.Smith BT 6 on Brian's website index,
    so clean,incredible! but i'm really reaching for one with long horns not vintage shape...maybe i'm too much demanding?

    you're so very kind for my modest person,you can believe me:
    WHAT YOU SAID TOUCHED ME DEEPLY! sincerely!;)

    ...and that gigantic free bump!!!

    hmmm something tell me you maybe spent a journey in Europa and you seem to know Paris,isn't it?:D
