    Hey, all y'all--

    This bass came my way as a trade, and while I've enjoyed some time with it I'm gonna put it up for sale. I'm not all that knowledgeable about Ken Smith basses, so I'd appreciate it very much if you could clue me as to the model name, reasonable asking price, wood, electronics, and any other stuff for the listing. The sticker in the control cavity shows the build date as 12/98, made in USA.

    In case you don’t know, this will not have the classic Ken Smith sound. It will sound more like that SB5000 you sold me, and that is a good thing!:D My guess is that it should be $2,500-$3,000.

    My price estimate is too low. I am seeing prices between $3,150-$3,450.
