    Hi , I'm happy to show you the new Ken Smith Burner Signature made on my own specifications .
    It’s made in Japan under Ken Smith control by SleekElite cie Mr Hajime Hirose ( Ken Smith Importer for japan )

    HADBURNER.

    The choice of woods is amazing : Buckeye , spalted Maple , Quilted Maple , Bubinga ….Walnut back ..
    Ivory ramps , Ivory Fingerboard .

    HADBURNER02.
    Regarding to control. Master Volume / Balancer / Bass / Treble / Mid Rotary Switch. This Mid Switch is amazing , it’s a 4 ways button , I can choose from 3 boost range. I can boost the volume as well when I take a solo ..
    Headstock is looking like Ken Smith range ( not as the old Burner)

    HADBURNER03.
    The Bass is active /passive
    String spacing will be 17,5 mm , action is low and perfect for the way I play ..
    BURNERBASS02.

    I send my best thoughts to all of you .

    No they will be Europe , USA and Japan available ( in a first time )
    and surely world wide some months after they would have been released .

    Yes they will be removeable ( double face sticker )

    I'm speechless! Now if they can do a 5'r with wider string spacing, I'm all over it! Beautiful basses!

    Nice! They should never have stopped making burners anyway.

    Very cool...I did not know that Ken was going to do a Burner series again. I guess he decided it was time to get in line behind the other boutique guys doing basses in Japan too.

    17.5mm isn't bad. I'm guessing this bass will be around $2K-$2.5K. The finish looks way too nice for this be inexpensive. Still, compared to a US Smith, 2-2.5K is kind of cheap.:D

    Pretty nice. I seem to remember the Burners having the same neck dive issues (when standing in strap position) as the original 'big head' Smith models on which they were based back in the day. This looks like it has that big headstock and that short upper horn also.

    It looks nice, but if it has that neck dive issue, IMO, that is a problem.
     
  18. I need a price!!!

    That might be the only Signature bass I'd ever want in my life :hyper:

    The pic clearly show the newer downsized Smith headstock. It doesn't help all that much though. My biggest problem with the BT shaped Smith's is the short upper horn and long reach for the lower registers. It plays great sitting down, though, and doesn't seem to hurt Hadrien's playing in the least while standing;) And I much prefer the BT shape to the BSR.
    Congrats Hadrien!
