    Basic Ken Taylor 30th Anniversary

    Some places list this as a VM5 30th Anniversary and others as a Basic KT 30th Anniversary. It's referred to as VM5 30th Anniversary on my receipt and the paperwork states:

    California VM2/5s, limited No. 13/30

    Beautiful bass!
  5. Pretty bass! Weight? I've never liked Sandbergs headstocks. This one is sweet! Rarer? Thanks.

    Would you take a picture of front of the bass showing pups and controls?
