1982 Ken Smith II G Bass


1982 Ken Smith Bass II G

Original and Exceptional Condition

Non-Original Hard shell Case


I’ll bet that the first time you saw “Encounters of the Third Kind,” you thought that big thing with all those lights coming over the mountain was a U.F.O. But, it wasn’t- it was this bass. This piece exhibits a grand array of features and functions that could only come from the minds of Ken Smith and Vinny Fodera.

To find an early Smith bass in this condition is rare and to find one with such an early serial number is even rarer still. It takes six 9-volt batteries to power this titan and after putting it through its paces, we now understand why. This II G performs flawlessly and the “Filter” and “Drive” settings produce some fairly interesting tones. The neck profile allows you to play the bass effortlessly and the way the bass “sits” is perfect- trust us when we say you won’t want to put it down!

The bass includes a hard-shell case that more than adequately protects the instrument and we can imagine the smile that will be on your face when you pull the bass out of its case for the first time. You will definitely appreciate the time, quality, and craftsmanship that went into making this handmade piece and as always, please feel free to email or call with any questions. The pictures should tell you that here at The ‘Elk, doing excellence is merely another day at the office…
