NBD Ken Smith KSD Burner 6 (B-stock)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TolerancEJ, Dec 5, 2012.

  1. I ordered a B-stock Ken Smith KSD Burner 6-string from zZounds for $749. It arrived today. There are a few dings in the body and a small ding on the tip of the headstock, both of which had already been disclosed on the website so I had no surprises. Even taking the few bumps into consideration, I'd say the bass is a solid 7.5 out of 10.

    The shipment arrived on time, so no problems there. The packaging, I'll give zZounds a 4 out of 10. It arrived in an instrument box simply stuffed with crumpled up paper. The box arrived with a few holes. It could be either they re-used an old box, or maybe the bass might have one or more dings extra.

    In any case, I like the bass & will be keeping it. It has a nice wide neck like my Warwick Thumb BO 6. Great tone!

    Great bass and great deal! I've got a 6er almost like that in blue burst. If yours is anything like mine I can assure you that even after years of playing it, you will STILL be constantly amazed at just how great a bass it is! Mine was used but oddly the dings on the headstock seem to have all been put there by me! We'll call it mojo.
  3. Thanks!

    Are the tuning keys gold, and the rest of the hardware chrome, or is it just the picture that makes it look like that?
  6. All the hardware is gold. I suppose I don't have proper lighting in my music room. The camera flash must have made them to appear chrome.

    Very nice!
  11. Actually I hadn't even realized it has a top. Only re-reading this post made me take a closer look. The body & top are pretty much seamless, which is why I thought it was just a 1-piece body.
