    Here's my Ken Smith BSR6 GN, made in 2000. I took it to a club gig a couple of weeks ago with the rig pictured and it made me very happy...as usual. This is my favorite bass for slap.

  9. Absolutely beautiful Smith's guys!!! I've never gotten over how terrific the Smiths I tried in N.Y. were. Definately the next indulgence on my list.
    What are the woods used in those JR, Peter?

    Thanks for the interest and compliments. Mine is the Bsr Elite with a walnut core and coco bola top. It has a huge ballsy tone with great growl. Ken makes fantastic basses.

    Here's a photo of the the same bass after an application of Ken Smith's wax. [Supplied with each KS bass] Woods are Walnut on Maple. The tone has a punchy low-midrange bark. Notes are very clear, yet "funked". :cool: Also, I can dial in many other tones.

    Thanks, man. The thing sounds pretty sweet, too. Uh, the front side, that is! ;)
     
  15. Here is mine, only a 4 string BSR J I'm afraid.

    It has a Walnut front and back over ash wings with a maple core.:D

    I just sold the Lakland Bob Glaub! Only took 7 hours. I wonder what Boogiebass' KS-6 would be like with two less strings?
