    I am a lucky owner of two increditable basses.
    A Kenneth Lawrence Associate Five
    and a Nordstrand SC5, both of them are incredible basses.

    As i am planning to go up to 6 strings again, i have to let go one of them. Here for sell is the KL Associated 5,
    Some of the dear fellows will have seen it before in Adrian's Access bass site. I got this bass in 99% mint conditon from the high end bass guru Mr.funkycarnivore.

    The detail spec of the bass is coming, but the first impression of the bass when i first get it on hand is that the bass is light. wear so comfortably compared to my SC5 and it is so gig friendly.

    The bass had been professionally fretdressed and preamp upgraded by my favor luthier Mr.Carey Nordstrand, and this play can be set with crazy low action.

    I am asking for $1950 included shipping ( if you are in living in state or HongKong),or if you have a quality 6ser in 34" scale to offer, i may consider trade. the bass come with a thick padded gigbag, and I am confidence with my shipping packaging, feel free to ask for some pictures on how i pack my bass.

    Anyway, thanks for looking at it and more info will come in shortly.

    If I didn't have a new bass on order already, I'd be all
    over this like a cheap suit. Like a dog on a bone. Like a
    bad paint job. etc, etc, etc........... Nice basso!

    i took this bass to a show once, i liked it better than a more expensive one i had at the time- extremely light and it's all class. very cool , unique bass. if i weren't a hopeless F guy and hadn't just committmed to another- i'd be seriously on this, i know this bass, and it is killin!
  11. Wow. There it is!

    Anyway, it has an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp and a pair of Nordstrand single coil J's.

    That REALLY looks nice and I have never played one of Ken's basses that was less than outstanding. I have a Brase 5 that is my #1 bass, it is a keeper.
