Building the World’s Greatest 100% Handmade Basses since 1978

Multi-String Electric Bass Pioneer Ken Smith has developed or introduced many of the innovations used on today’s basses which are now industry standards. Some of these include Printed Circuit Board Electronics, Graphite Inlaid Neck, Detent Balance and EQ controls, Low ‘B’ Design .128 and .130, and Taper Core Bass Strings. Ken Smith hand picks the wood for every bass from our in-house lumberyard, which features over 20 species of aged tone woods. Visitors to the factory are awe struck by what is probably the largest collection and variety of acclimated musical-grade woods in the world. Inspired by the techniques of 16th - 19th Century European stringed instrument makers, Smith Basses are a marriage of Old World Tradition and Modern Innovation. Ken Smith supervises the production of each bass and still does the final set-up.

Ken Smith has been building investment grade basses since 1978. Ken uses the finest woods available and frequently has limited addition models available. We can custom-order a Smith in your choice of woods. We carry not only his extremely well-made basses, but strings and polish.
