Default Shop Visit

I RECENTLY TOOK A TRIP TO KEN SMITH'S SHOP AND I MUST SAY I HAD A GREAT TIME. I HAD TO SEE FOR MYSELF THE EXTREMELY HIGH LEVEL OF ATTENTION TO CARE THAT GOES INTO EACH INSTRUMENT. I WAS ALSO IMPRESSED WITH KEN TAKING THE TIME TO SHOW ME EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW. WHAT IMPRESSED ME THE MUST WAS THAT ‘HE IS A PLAYER HIMSELF’, AND AN EXCELLENT ONE AT THAT. I DON’T WANT TO TAKE THE WORD OF A NON BASS PLAYER WHO IS TRYING TO SELL WHAT HE THINKS AN ACTUAL PLAYER WANTS. I HAVE GOOD IDEA OF WHAT I WANTED (IN EQ) BUT IT WAS GREAT THAT KEN SHOWED ME HOW TO MAKE IT BETTER. FOR ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING TO PURCHASE A KEN SMITH BASS, A SHOP VISIT SHOULD BE A REQUIREMENT.
THANKS AGAIN

PEACE,
BRYAN

I always wanted to visit the shop. Sounds like you had a fun and informational time. I'm kinda thinking when I get ready to order my fretless BSR5EG or BSR5TNE I'll head up there for the tour and order it face to face with Ken.
