Selling this beautiful 1997 4 String Ken Smith Bass. Here's a description from Ken Smith himself:
"...this is a BSR 4B. The B model was an upgrade package for the BSR 'M' model with a package of extras, 3-band EQ (2-band was standard then on the M model), ebony fingerboard (upgraded from morado), top dots (was an option) and gold hardware (chrome was standard). So this model had about $400 of options list price which in usa is $300 street price then. We only made this model/package for a year or so. Then it was just the M model with upgrades, not a different model. M-G was an M with gold..."
