Hi TB'ers. Thanks for dropping by. Well, I pulled the trigger on a KSD Lefty Proto J tonight. I've been intrigued by the model since I first saw them a couple years ago. I just returned a faulty Ibanez lefty and wanted another bass, this time a classic sunburst because it's been years since I've owned a classic style J bass. So while I was browsing the online stores this one came up at me and made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I know, I know, I've heard all the horror stories about Ken Smith here on TB. I know they are designed by Ken Smith but not built by him. But I got the bass for such a good deal I can sell it and make all the money back I invested in it. So, are there any other KSD bass players out there? Can anyone come up with something positive to say about these basses? I noticed it's been quite a while since the KSD forum has been accessed and used. Thanks for those of you who chime in!
