So I just bought this 2018 BSR 5 string. Took me 30+ years but finally a KS bass owner!

Nice bass. Since FB became more popular, this and other Forums have quieted down quite a bit.

Back in the fold. Have an upcoming project that could use extended range, and while I historically haven't bonded with 6'ers, I at least know I'll like the sound of a Smith and it will be highly playable. First shedua top I've had - gorgeous. I'm usually not a gold hardware kinda guy but the coloration of the shedua makes it work to my eye.
