Here's a great fiver ! A Chuck Rainey 1993 Ken Smith.

The bass is in superb condition even if it has almost 25 years of age.

I've put a brand new BT preamp which is the original preamp for that bass. It was missing when I bought it a few years ago. There are 2 strap-locks holes in the back and that is about it for the odd stuff on that bass. It plays like a charm with the low action and the 19mm spacing. The shape of the neck is really good and makes it easy to play for a 5 strings.

I'm a sucker for the Smith sound and this one is it !!!

The glossy finish is still excellent and nobody can tell that this is a 1993 bass.

I'm asking $2,500 with a soft case.

I'm showing an interest in your bass but you would definitely have to be open minded on price.

Do you still have the bass? Would you accept an offer of $ 2000?
