2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar

2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar

Holla! It’s a 2008 Ken Smith BSR5MW Electric Bass Guitar handcrafted right here in the good old USA. She’s a solid union of Flame Maple and Walnut that seller notes plays and sounds great. Her pickups are custom Smiths and I’m pretty sure those five control knobs give you loads of sonic control over the sounds she makes. She’s definitely been played; you can see some nicks and such, including a little finish marring where a…

Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Some folks have a special talent for coming up with cool names, such as the people who dreamed up the Modulus Quantum Fretless Electric Bass Guitar. Modulus sounds like some futuristic robot. Quantum evokes atomic energy. Put it all together and that is some special sauce being laid down. Seller thinks this beauty is from 1998 but isn’t 100% solid on that. Seller knows for sure this is a one-owner bass because he sold it as a custom…

Tobias Toby Pro-4 Electric Bass Guitar

Tobias Toby Pro-4 Electric Bass Guitar

Here’s a sweetheart from Korea, a Tobias Toby Pro-4 Electric Bass Guitar. She was made in 1997, using 5 pieces of wood. If you look closely you can see what was glued to what to make her come to life. She is one tall drink of water—and her neck is like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going and going. She has a bit of player wear that her natural finish camouflages very well. Once…

Ibanez SR500 Electric Bass Guitar

Ibanez SR500 Electric Bass Guitar

Hmmm, take a good hard look at this Ibanez SR500 Electric Bass Guitar. It’s quite a fine instrument, no? Then why would seller go and ruin that impression by writing—and this is a direct quote—”I notice a tiny bit of distortion sometimes when I first plug in and start playing. Could be an input jack issue, or my instrument cable, however it is minor issue and the only reason I priced the bass so low.” Huh?…

Custom Benavente SCD Jazz Electric Bass Guitar

Custom Benavente SCD Jazz Electric Bass Guitar

Feast your eyes on this “Mother, may I?”—a Custom Benavente SCD Jazz Electric Bass Guitar with an outrageous Monkey Pod top and back. Seller calls her “maybe the best playing and best sounding jazz type bass I have ever owned, massive, incredible tone and a slap machine!” So why is he selling? He’s changed styles to playing 5-string basses so this beauty has become a closet queen. And she deserves better. She’s hand built by master…

Carvin Icon 4 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Carvin Icon 4 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar

Some axes have it, some don’t. This 2006 Carvin Icon 4 Fretless Electric Bass Guitar falls squarely in the “have it” camp. Let’s start with her stunning two-piece figured Walnut top. As pretty as it is, though, it hides the sonic good stuff—A Hard Rock Maple neck with neck through construction and Ash body wings for superb mid-to-upper range resonance. She also rocks a Hipshot string-through bridge for an extra boost of resonance. Her fretless Ebony…

Washburn AB-10 Acoustic Bass

Washburn AB-10 Acoustic Bass

Well, we’ve got our detective work cut out for us here with this used Washburn AB-10 Acoustic Bass. Seller only tells us a few things: a) the sale includes a hard case; b) the bass is black, right handed and 4 stringed; c) he will not ship out of the continental US; d) he invites questions and close scrutiny of the photos; and e) he accepts no returns. That’s it and that’s all. No place or…

R Basses Electric Bass Guitar

R Basses Electric Bass Guitar

Hot damn, this R Basses Electric Bass Guitar is one fine-looking instrument. I’d never heard of this brand before so I did a little research. The R takes its name from Reynaldo (Ray) Roger who founded the company in a small shop in Brooklyn in 1997. He now makes his axes in his birth place, Puerto Rico, so he could expand his operation to build basses like the one you see here. And what a beauty…

NS Design NXT Double Bass

NS Design NXT Double Bass

Whuzzat?!?!?!?!? That was my initial reaction when I ran across this NS Design NXT Double Bass. I was so intrigued by her that I did a little research since seller only says, literally, this: “Will ship in it’s (sic) original box. Item has 2 small dings on neck but otherwise is in “like new” condition never being played…only tuned up then put away.” Thanks a ton for the 411. Now, my turn. The “NS” in the…

Vantage VS-695B Electric Bass Guitar

Vantage VS-695B Electric Bass Guitar

Do you like long scale basses? Then I think you’re gonna groove on this Vantage VS-695B Electric Bass Guitar. Seller writes she’s in good condition with some play wear around her pickup, some scratches on her back and a brass nut at the end of her looooong neck. She was made in Japan at the famed Matsumoku factory and comes with a case (no mention if it’s original.) Beyond that, seller is sparse on details such as…
