Up for sale is a 1998 Ken Smith BT in excellent condition especially for a 20 years old amazing bass.

This 6 strings bass is the easiest I played so far. Unfortunately I cannot play that bass anymore because of my health condition. It comes with a generic gig bag.

Asking price is $3,000 US plus shipping. No trades please.

Thanks. This bass is the easiest 6 strings I've ever played. The neck is incredible.

Here is a link for the youtube demo I just did. I apologize for my poor playing. Got a severe stroke 2 years ago that left my left side paralyzed for several months....

Wow, that's awesome! Watched the video, and it sounded fantastic! Just curious, what was the spacing? I play an inexpensive Ibanez 6-string which has 17mm spacing, with a rather flat neck profile, and it is very easy to play, even with my average sized hands....

I have the feeling it is 1 mm less then its 5 strings bridges. I'll have to check on his site. Also the neck is so confortable for a 6.

So a regular 3/4" is about 20mm and KS bridge for a 5 strings is 19mm so I feel it is a 18mm.
