    Hey Pedro long time!
    Gorgeous Smith! You are going to regret this one!
    Pedro is a great guy and an amazing bassplayer -you can deal
    with confidence.

    by the way, you should post an audio clip especially if you recorded your arrangement of “Cana Brava” with the Smith.

    I dont have the weigh yet, but it's so far the lighter smith i had play, the best sound i had play from smith too, i had play 4 smith basses already, and this is something else.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRopGdemIg8&feature=BFa&list=UUicjY6gH0YrvItz3KjJMC8Athis is the audio, Here the color is dead, because it was recorded from a cell but actually the color is much brighter than that..... and the sound it's like really fast and accurate, any player who wants to play fast and with a comfortable action have to buy this bass.... another thing, i think its really comfortable because it's supposedly 18mm Spacing at the bridge, but to me it feels 17.5, i had a lot 18mm before and this to me feel less, to me that helps a lot to play much faster and there is less time to wasted between each string.... weight is less than other smith i had, it's a smaller and more compact instrument too...

    Are you going up in string count or down from five?

    Great playing and nice tone in the clip you posted.

    Can't get over how some players, play more notes in one song, than I do in a whole month!............kidding. What a beautiful representation of the "Smith" sound. What articulation, and string muting! Nothing but the note. GLWYS!
