    Price:
    5200
    Strings:
    6
    Location:
    Texas
    For sale is my Ken Smith Black Tiger Elite with extremely rare figured Walmut. This is a very nice bass. It was stated that there's only less than 1% of the Walnut wood has this pattern. The bass have highly figured Walnut Wings and Flame Maple core. The tone of this thing is monstrous.

    It has a 34" scale.

    String spacing:
    -Nut: 9mm (23/64")
    -Bridge: 18mm (23/32")

    Fingerboard Width:
    -Nut: 2 1/8"
    -24th Fret: 3 5/8"

    Low B string is super tight, known as "The tightest B string in the business". Right now the actually is pretty low and there's no buzzing at all. Playability is so awesome that I find myself just playing the bass for hours and hours without getting bored. The bass is in near mint condition because I am not a gigging musician.
    All I can say is this is the most beautiful and best sounding bass that I have ever own. The bass comes with original hard case, Ken Smith strap and paperwork.

    This is one sweet Smith. I have owned both a Fodera Imperial and Smith Elite at one time or another and I always leaned more towards the Smith when it comes to tone and playability. Just saying.
