    Super rare! My pictures do not do this bass justice, the wood is incredible! This bass was made on Valentine's day 2001 and the serial number is 222. Item location is Canada.

    PRICE DROP 05/30/09 $2450 U.S. plus shipping for the bass
    *Trades: Fodera or vintage Fender only.

    The features include:

    -Highly figured Walnut top with matching headstock veneer
    -Three piece body; ash centre and beautifully figured mahogany wings
    -Birds Eye maple fingerboard
    -Three piece Eastern Hard Rock Maple neck,graphite reinforced,bolt-on 24 frets
    -35 inch scale length
    -Custom Basslines pickups and 3 band preamp w/slap contour switch on the master volume knob.
    -Black hardware- Hipshot ultralite tuners and bridge
    -Brand new Protec Contego bass case

    The craftsmanship on this bass is second to none. It's the small details; hand carved neck screw sockets and Wenge control cavity cover that really make this bass a masterpiece. Ken is a one man operation and it's not too often that one shows up on the used market. The bass is also quite light weighing 9 lbs. The condition is 9.5/10 with just a few small surface scratches that could be easily buffed out.

    Purchase Details:

    Will ship worldwide. Buyer pays shipping. Shipping price varies depending on location of buyer. Certified cheque or Money order. Visa or Mastercard may also be possible methods.

    Here's an "I can't believe this is still here" bump for ya, Rabster. Seriously guys, Ken's basses are as good as it gets and the craftsmanship, tone and playability of his basses are second to none. These are true works of art!

    BUMP for "I can't believe it is still here!"

    Ken's stuff is just amazing! I'd post a pic of mine but don't want to derail the thread.

    Thanks Dan. I can't believe it either. Interest is gaining though and I don't think we'll see it too much longer. Cheers.
