    I just received my most recent ebay purchase today. It was a Ken Smith CRV Pro 5 with a Bubinga front and back, and Mac Ebony board. I bought it for the BIN price of $1250. When I saw the add, I thought there must be something wrong with it. Then I read that it was in mint condition. I decided to pull the trigger, and bought it. Well, I've been keeping my fingers crossed the past week hoping that this bass was truely mint like stated. Finally today it came to my door step and when I opened it, I was elated becase there wasn't a mark on it, and it appeared that it was hardly played! I plugged it in, and it plays sweet. The seller was very cool and honest as well. I guess for every ebay horror story, there's also a positive one. Here's a link to the auction http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2518169454&category=4713. Better pics will be coming soon.

    Nice. I saw that option and thought that somebody was gonna make a real nice score. Yup, I'm psychic.

    Peace,

  8. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that the CR stands for Chuck Rainey. Nice bass. Nicer price.
