    Is this legit, I saw the Neg feedback, plus I can't make out the pics very well and there is no real discription of the bass, what do you think???? I am not trying to be mean or anything, but my gut is telling me something is not right here, plus he mentioned he played whith Fred Hammond, if so, PROPS TO HIM!! All of Fred Hammonds bassplayers have been Great, fwiw.

    it doesn't appear to be a good enough deal to be worth trusting someone whose only feedback is negative.

    Hi guys, FWIW a 2004 BSR6M , Stock w/o options with the 'new' Circuit lists for $3,600. and the Street Price published is $2,700..... Here; http://www.kensmithbasses.com/models/custombolton/bsrcrm.htm

    The Wood on that Ebay Bass looks highly figured. Get me a serial # and I'll look up the Grade and see if it was an Upcharge..........Have fun....... Ken

    BTW, The Truss rod wrench for that bass is 1/8" and not 5mm. The Pickup pole pieces are 3mm. I have no idea why he is offering a 5mm wrench. The bridge wrench again is .050" and not 1.5mm. Imports usually use those sizes...not us....Then again, those sound like our Burner Bass Wrench sizes...??

    Oops...... Sorry, the wrenches are on the second listing. Well, bot Basses have nice figure. My offer stands. Get me a # and I'll look up the wood grade used.
