    Hello All,
    I just purchased this used Ken Smith 6 string bass .
    ITS A BSR 6M. The bass is in EX+++ condition and sounds completely amazing. It also has the most comfortable neck of any 6 string bass I have played.
    I really need a slammin 5 string bass so I bought this one because I knew it would make great trade bait!
    I am interested in Sadowsky but let me know what you have.

    I paid $2000.00 for it so I guess I would let it go for that.

    Rick, did you tell the folks that your 6M is highly figured AAAA (4A) Tiger Maple ($230. extra/net) and that in itself is an upcharge?
