What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This bass is truly built with the player in mind. Lightweight enough for hours of gigging, a fast, comfortable neck for the most active player. Be it grooving down low (and this bad boy gets low) or soloing up in the highest position (made convenient and reachable by the lower horn's shape and placement) this bass gets out of your way and lets you do what you're really here to do. Play! Bolstered by the range of sounds accesible from the active on-board 3-band EQ, there's simply nothing this BSR from Ken Smith can't do. This series is discontinued, so these BSR's are only getting more difficult to find.
