    Welcome! This is a rare Ken Smith BT6 from 1987, a beast of a bass that I used for years on recordings mostly. Please take my word for it, this bass sounds AMAZING; tight, even, punchy, sustain for weeks, etc... It's a true specimen of Mr Smiths abilities as one of the best bass makers of all time. Rare Snowflake inlays, Three stack knobs and intricate wood combinations make this one part of a small batch of basses Ken made in the 80's that are very saught after and renown for their sound and simplicity.

    Please note that I played this bass .. so there is wear at the front pick up (where my thumb rests) and the side (where my arm rested) and some dings here and there .. those were actually made by me and not some stranger! The rest of the bass is in perfect playing condition. For the very interested , I can send a recording of this bass to show you its full capabilities.

    The reason for selling this beast is that my 6 string days are over, I'm playing mostly upright now and very vintage oriented basses for the projects that I'm in. I've been relunctant to sell this bass for years now because I love it so much, but, I have to face the fact that it needs to be played by someone WAY more then I'm playing it, it needs a new home, and it needs to be in the hands of someone who really really wants it. Contact me for any questions and thanks!

    Comes with Original Lock Strap and Non-Original Hard Shell Case.
