    Gorgeous Ken Smith Black Tiger.
    Rare figured Walnut top and back, Tiger maple core, maple neck. Ebony fingerboard. Top is one of the most exquisite pieces of figured walnut in my opinion anyway. Real nice consistency and grain.

    If you know Smith basses you know what a dream they are to play. Fantastic balance and that sweet Smith punch in tone. Not to mention superb build quality and attention to detail.

    This one has the serial/parallel pickup switches. 3 band EQ.

    Real nice condition. Nothing major to report, just regular wear. It is a used bass so please don't expect it to appear brand new but it is really in great condition. A few minor indentations here and there and worming from use. See pictures. 4th picture shows small indentation on front. You have to be looking to see anything. One ding about the size of a large pin head on bottom of lower horn. See third picture from last. Hardware is great condition too with maybe some very slight discoloration. I try to be up front and honest with my listings. This thing is killer! Fantastic feeling and playing neck. These things play themselves with crazy low action.

    Comes with Smith hard shell case in great condition. Red tag is still in the combo slot so you can set the combo to your liking.

    $3700 shipped CONUS
    PRICE DROP $3400 shipped CONUS
    Might be open to a trade that nets me cash.

    Beautiful bass. Visited Mr. Smith's shop a few weeks ago and loved the craftsmanship of his instruments. Is the bass still available?

    Ok. I'm tentatively putting this back on the market. My daughter is advancing in her musical abilities and needs a new oboe. I'm proud of her and would like to support her musical ambitions so this would help that purchase.

    Please PM me with questions. Low-ball offers will be ignored.
