    Both of these can come with a professionally installed J-Retro (J-Retro Deluxe on the KSD), or the original preamp, not quite sure I wanna sell, I kinda want a metro and am testing the waters, if I see an offer I'm willing to take these'll sell, just want to see how much people will offer on these.

    Oh yea both have minor dings on the basses.
    KSD is the natural one ash body with all maple neck
    Jaco Fender is the fretless one (Morado neck lined fretless)
    and alder body in 3tone burst.

    Working on getting pics of these (The KSD is on loan to a friend, I should be getting it back soon), I need to buy myself a digital camera sometime soon :p Maybe I'll borrow a friends and get pics and closeups of the dings n stuff.

    Any interest in trading the jaco bass for an MTD heir 5 fretless? It's new, and I also had the board dressed by Carey Nordstrand. It SLAMS, but I'm truly a 4 stringer.
    Let me know...

    Actually I just got rid of the KSD (Well the deal's going down on Saturday) and some money for a MTD 535, so I don't need to sell the Jaco anymore. Thanks for all the interest (plus I didn't have a camera so good thing I'm doing this with a friend cause I couldn't get my hands on one, next on the list, digital camera! :p)
