Item: 1995 .Ken Smith BT6G
** NEW ARRIVAL ** Two words for this one: tone monster. This BT6G is one of the finest basses I have ever picked up and if you want an instrument that will give you virtually any sound that you desire, then this is it. The neck plays effortlessly and is straight with no dead spots. It's precision manufacturing at its finest.
The string spacing reads at 18mm at the bridge saddles and the bass weighs exactly 10 lbs, 12 oz. That's nothing to a bass player- I remember many years of jumping off P.A. systems with a 13 lb Musicman Stingray, so this one sits and feels great. The twin Ken Smith pickups are smooth and even toned, allowing you to go from a low growl to a mid-rangy Jaco-like bark. Again, the tones this bass can achieve are varied and incredible. It features a five-piece neck and body, quilted maple front and back and ebony fretboard.
There is some light playwear on the bass, mostly being some light surface scratches and a few dings. It's obvious that this BT6 has served someone well and not sat in a closet, but it's also been well taken care of. The package includes the bass, a Ken Smith catalog and a brand-new Ken Smith padded gigbag. It's the perfect instrument for the working bassist that needs a professional bass, but not at a crazy, sky-high price. Please feel free to email or call with any questions and we'll be right on them!
