Hi Ken,

I was really enjoying the weekly videos you were putting out 3 - 4 months ago.

Why did you stop doing them? They were really quite good.

Thanks
John

Excellent news Ken! I looked forward to them each week. I have a list of video requests or topics if you are looking for requests from viewers on what they want to see.

Questions:
I was actually going to call the shop today to ask a few questions but maybe it's easier here.

Did any American made KS 4 string basses have 18mm string spacing? Are all 4 strings 19mm?

Did you ever make a 4 string BT with your jazz pickup layout? Or was that only available in BSR models?

(You made me a BT5 in 1989 that is still my main bass. Now I'm looking for a sister 4 string but thought maybe a jazz setup would be a nice contrast. But I like the BT body style. I know the Burners had that layout but I was wondering if the American basses might also. Would prefer an American model.)

The Videos are usually on YouTube.



4s were always 19mm
