    Hey all-
    I'm trying to make some space, and considering getting rid of a very nice Smith 6-er...
    BTG (graphite reinforced) 6, Koa front n back, Mahogany core..
    Morado board I believe...
    I used this on the Planet X cd Quantum, and also on a bunch of other stuff...It is pictured in this Drumscene feature, and I used it on a bunch of Planet X live shows, and with Virgil Donati's group too....
    Will post some more pics-here's one for now..
    Appreciate input on price/value...
    Condition is excellent for its age-it has fine scratches on the back and a little wear round the pickups but other than that, very nice indeed.
    Cheers
    Rufus

    Nice KS. I'd say anywhere between $3400-3800 is reasonable for the US market. But hey, what do I know about the US...
    BTW, the fingerboard is probably Ebony.

    Hey, hey! I'm 26, nothing that has been created in my lifetime should be considered "vintage."

    I'd bet you could get right around 3k for it pretty easily,
    despite a crappy current market.
