I was at Guitar Center last week and there was an old Ken Smith Burner sitting there (they wanted $1400!!!!!)- I really liked the way the neck felt, it sounded good, it was way too neck heavy- but, what!!!!!!! What a rip-off. I might want a higher end Smith, I see used BSRJ5's on ebay once in while. So my question is- will the neck on one of those (the width, etc) be very similiar to the Burner- only way, way better???? Also, does anyone know a 5-string Ken Smith owner in the Minneapolis area that might let me come over and play on it for a minute??? I really want to play one before a big ebay purchase like that. I just bought a Modulus Quantum 5 off ebay and i LOVE it!!! And my other main gtr is a mid-90's Carvin LB75, the necks were thinner back then I think. I bought another LB75 a few years ago and hated it. Based on the two basses that I like, with the thinner necks- any suggestions on other brands to try (not Ibanez!!)??? I will be in So. CA next month- where should I go to shop, shop, shop for basses? I want to play a Ken Smith! What about Chicago? I will be there next week. Help me.
