Yes, it is a Brase I open (5-string) and is my 5th Ken Lawrence. I have a never-ending case of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) so I ended up selling the others like an dummy, but I found this one right after I sold my Fodera. Horrible picture but I got hooked on Ken's basses in Bass Alone in San Diego and we did a display with Ken's basses. tj Hill on the right, Ken in the center and I am on the left. Ken's personal basses are the one on the bottom row with the inlay and the Chamberbass to the right of it.
