Funny, I bought an Artist 5, a '91 in '92 also. Identical to this one except it was a 5 and it had Jazz pickups in it. It's one I'd really like to have back. If this were a 5 it'd be mine. I bet those soaps KILL. If it suits you, this is genuine Smith quality at a bargain price. GLWS!!
The chinaman's not the issue here, Dude....Shut the @#$% up Donnie.
