Make It Count With A Ken Smith BSR5EG Elite 5 String Bass W/ 5A "Exhibition Grade" Quilted Maple Wings And Tiger Maple Core. You've paid your dues, and now...it's time. 

The Ken Smith BSR5EG Elite 5 String Bass With 5A Grade Quilted Maple Wings And A Tiger Maple Core is unreservedly presented by Ken as his absolute highest grade and most attractively figured wood - period. Agreed. This is one great sounding, gorgeous bass.

This bass has the “NEW” Smith B.M.T. 3 Band Active EQ 18-volt Circuit with Internal 4-way adjustable frequency DIP switches for each band, Smith Custom Bass Humbucking Soapbar Pickups and Fully Shielded Pickup & Control Cavities. It is has a 34 inch scale neck through 5 piece aged hardrock maple neck with a fingerboard made of quartersawn Macassar ebony. There is a matching wood headstock overlay on this model along with an individually hand-fit scalloped brass nut. The bridge itself is machined from solid brass. The hand buffed catalyzed lacquer finish on it is reserved exclusively for use on Ken Smith Elite Models.

All Smith Basses come with Smith Hardshell Case, Smith Genuine Leather Strap with Sheepskin Shoulder Pad with Dunlop Straploks Installed (Dual Design, Flush Mount on Neck-Thru Models Only), Smith Classic Wax or Smith Pro Formula Polish, Smith Lint-Free Polish Cloth, Wrench Kit for Adjustments, and Original Warranty.

Starting in 1978, Ken Smith has developed or introduced so many of the innovations used on today’s basses which are now industry standards. Some of these include Printed Circuit Board Electronics, Graphite Inlaid Neck, Detented Balance and EQ controls, Low ‘B’ Design .128 and .130, and Taper Core Bass Strings. Ken Smith hand selects the wood for every bass from his in-house lumberyard, which features over 20 species of aged tonewoods, and is probably the largest single collection and variety of acclimated musical-grade woods in the world. Admiring of the techniques of 16th – 19th Century European stringed instrument makers,Ken Smith Basses has married together both Old World Tradition with Modern Innovation. Ken Smith himself still supervises the production of each bass and himself does the final set-up.
