I want to offer for sale my Ken Smith CR6 bass that served me well last 7 years. Bass is in very good condition as for its 27 years. The sound of this bass is very characteristic and well appreciate among Smith lovers. Although I would describe it as more vintage sound. It's fat but not so punchy as modern basses. I've played a lot of gigs on it and was happy with it's ergonomics. Neck is very comfortable.
Here are some specs:
Body: - tone block: maple, sides: mahogany, top: quilted maple, Back: maple,
Electronic and pickups: Ken Smith.
Equalizer: 2 band active/passive
Prevoius owner contacted Mr. Smith to verify it's authenticy and here's what he got for answer:
"The first bolt-on was 001. This is 019. We made 28 basses in the first run. We only made 6s at first. You have the 19th one numbered of the first 28 made in a group."
Bass is located in Poland (Central Europe). It ships in custom made strengthened gig bag.
The price I'm asking is 2150GBP incl. shipping cost (EU - DPD; US, Canada - EMS).
If you want some more detailed pictures please PM me.
Here we have a gorgeous Ibanez BTB1606 Premium!
The sound and feel is amazing and soooo much more comfortable than I expected out of a 6 string as most 6 strings I've tried have been a bit cumbersome (definitely a first time 6'er for anyone thinking about it)
It has a very musical and useful 3 band EQ with specifically a great bass and switchable Mid EQ. Also a Active/Passive switch!
I bought for use in a band that Im no longer part of so its time to move on.
It comes with the fitted Ibanez Premium Hardcase which is mint condition.
It has a few light marks that you can see in the pictures but all are small and only cosmetic.
Based In London and would really prefer collection but I can help deliver in London

Selling this is I don't really play it that much and am mainly using a Jazz Bass these days.
This, however, is still a great bass from the Yamaha custom shop in Japan. I have mainly used it in P Bass mode and it is killer for Motown and Soul and Disco stuff. The added benefit of switching between pick ups creates a variety of different sounds and the tone dial has a lot of depth to it depending on how much you roll on or off. For example, you can get a great Jaco sound from the bridge pick up and then a quick change to sounding like Jamerson on the neck pick up. It's like having two basses in one model.
I bought it from Yamaha in Soho last year. It is in great condition and comes with a Yamaha case. Come and check it out.

Hi, for sale here is a Yamaha BBG4A - mk 2 in a lovely deep red.
The bass is in good condition with only one ding I can find on the top horn (pictured). The gold metal work has started to tarnish slightly, but I think that only adds to the appeal.
The eagle eyed amongst you may have spotted this is currently wearing piccolo strings, for the sale it'll be back to standard round strings, but if you'd like the piccolos ill leave it as is for an extra tenner.
Pick up preferred near Honiton, but can drop off at a gig if my band is coming near you anytime soon, dates here - http://www.cloudbustingkatebushtribute.com/dates.html
or there's postage, buyer can sort own courier or I can post for the extra cost.
