Edit: looks like this discussion is gearing towards 'all Ken Smith', so I modified the title accordingly!
Good morning! I'm late with this, as I bought the bass now few weeks ago already - however! It would be a crime not to share it with you all
I have a strict rule of 1 in, 1 out, and I generally only own 2 basses at a time (if not just one sometimes), AND I only have GAS attacks once every 6 to 8 years, so when that time comes, I GAS hard

For sale. Beautiful Ken Smith Black Tiger 5 from 2011. Comes with everything shown in the photos (Smith case and strap, spare set of Dunlop strap locks and Smith letter of authenticity).

Looking for serious offers on this price. Postage and pick-up can be arranged. Good luck,
