    Ok before the whole debate starts over this I want to make it clear to Ken that I own the real thing. I love my real Ken Smith so much I purchased a bass with a similiar shape. I do not play four strings so I want to trade for a 5 string bass. I do not know much about customs only what I have read here lately so I will answer questions to the best of my knowledge. I am not a wear-weenie so if you have a bass that sounds good and is a little worn, send me a pic and we will see.

    I checked out the link and I'm more interested in it.

    Are you going to FSU?

    If so, I'm local and would love to check out the Sadowsky!
    PM or email me and let me know if that's cool.

    Good luck with grad school. Is this your first semester? I'm on my third.

    Sorry to muck up this thread. But here's a bump.:)

    This looks like one of those basses that was made in Brazil. How much are you asking for it?

    If I were to sell straight out I only want what I have in it which is $400
  8. I just checked out his bass today, not bad at all. I've heard alot of negativity towards this bass luthier (No I do not want to get involved with the debate) but the bass, well, it was pretty nice. It was very good lookin, but for me the fretboard was a little on the thick side, which is a big deal for me. It feels a tad bigger than a P-bass. The neck is thin, but the fretboard wasn't. The body felt smaller than his real Ken Smith (THE KS WAS AMAZING TO PLAY!!!), and the woods were spectacular lookin. The frets need a little sanding, which isn't that big of a deal, and you need to find the right pickups to fit it, but if you put a little love into it, it'll be a nice bass. I walked away quite impressed and tryin to debate if the fretboard really IS that big of a deal.

    P.S. Ivory's a nice guy, sat around and talked to him for a bit, pretty darn good bassist too.

    Disclaimer***I do not want to get involved in the whole debate, I do not take either side, its none of my business***

    Thanks Big Mike!!! Still trying to sell as I have two of the same bass. I love my Ken Smith BSR6M and jumped at chance to have a similar bass built ending up with two. The other is currently being wired with Nordstrands.
