Price: £ 3200

This bass was made in England by Ken Miller in 2006 and I have owned it for 3 years, in which it has accompanied me on many gigs and recordings. At the end of last year I invested in a new carved instrument, which means that I no longer need this one.

still, this is a carved bass made in England, hence and investment that will go up in value, despite the chips and scars of a life on stage.

woods: old spruce top, maple sides, I think poplar back.

It is not pristine! There are countless chips and scratches that only add to the unbelievable mojo. There are a few luthier-repairs done professionally by the maker himself, before it came to me. In the 3 years I have had it, it has been superbly stable.
The playability of this bass is incredible: it is what you could describe as “plays itself”, thanks to the wonderful setup work of Jerome Davies.
it sounds phenomenal: powerful, dark and moody, yet articulated perfectly well and it’s easy to play.
Certification: Made by Ken Miller London. Anno 2006. Number 13
