Ken Smith is on a distinguished road

Having just come in from Europe it had to settle after the first winter here. It will need a full internal restoration to make it ready for playing. Then the bass will get a KS/USA style set-up like all the other double basses in the racks in my showroom.

When it returns to the showroom, it will be ready for professional use.

Here are some pics (pre-restoration) and measurements of the Hell bass.

String Length; 41 1/8"
Top/Back Length; 41" top, 42 3/4" back
Upper Bout; 19"
Middle Bout; 14 1/2"
Lower Bout; 25 1/8"
Ribs; 7 3/4", 5 3/4" at neck
