    Fantastic Ken Smith BSR5EG Single Cut Elite with a 25 year-old Pau Ferro top. Completed in May 2017, this is basically a new bass, which sold new for $6995. Mahogany body, walnut back, tiger maple laminates, ebony board, 5 piece maple neck with walnut stringers.

    Here is the link to the new sale listing: 2017 Ken Smith BSR5EG Single Cut Elite 5 String with 25 Year Old Figured PaoFerro (Morado) Top !

    It is in mint condition and just a beautiful bass. Very comfortable to play and it has that Smith bark. Includes the Smith gig bag, new unused Smith strap, wrenches, Smith polish and polishing cloth, and paperwork. $5500 shipped insured ConUS.

    For trades I will consider Fodera 5s +/- as appropriate, some MTD 5s and possibly vintage Fenders, not looking for much else, but try me via PM/Conversation.

    It seems like the market for expensive Basses has dried up! U look here and all the high end Basses have been here for quite sometime.

    These things take time, sometimes. I was just playing this one again, and it really is wonderful. Every once in a while I am tempted to move it out quickly, but each time I play it I am reminded of how nice it is. New this would be $7k, if you could even find one.

    Since I am not playing this as my number one I would like to move it along to someone who will appreciate it, and more importantly, play it! This is way too nice to be a backup or an occasional bass. IMO this should be someone's daily player.

    To that end, trades will be considered! I've had several nice offers so far, thanks to everyone who has been interested. Try me via PM/Conversation with ideas.
