Post Ken Smith pics please!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by sethlow3, Jun 26, 2004.

  1. I've got a Smith fix lately, and all the old Smith porn on TB have pics that no longer work on the new TB format. So please post everything from the most pieced neck-thrus to the simple two piece BSR bodies I GAS for the most.

    Thank you

    Here's my 1999 BSR-J4. I really like it. The wood combo is avidoire and walnut with a bubinga board. It's a really live sounding bass and the preamp is super flexible and useful. Definitely the best neck I've had the pleasure of, too. I think the Smith 4 necks are the shiznitz!

    However, Daryl Jones has this one (from lowdbass) which I would like to own...however, I prefer the new preamp to the old BT preamp.

    Out of the several Smith's I've owned this one is the best and is probably the best overall bass I've owned as well.

    I've not had the oportunity to play more than 1 or 2 Smith's but I'm interested in them because of their 34" scale lengths. Do you guys find the back pickup to be usable? It seems awefully close to the bridge to me.

    that must be, a really expensive bass.
    The construction seems to be top notch... look at the quality of the fingerboard joint.. and body layers...
    Just awesome.

    How much?

    do you accept American express?

    You obviously haven't looked at the "typical" Smith price tag have you? ;)

    Awesome instruments but you definitely pay top $$$ for them.

    I had this BSR-EG for a few years and it was a great bass all around, but I found a '62 Jazz that totally blew me away so it had to go. Built like a Rolls Royce, impeccable craftsmanship.
