    hey there currentbuzz!
    Thanks for the compliments-you know I used to play 6 string..I may be a bit unusual in that I went 4 string to 6, and now I play 5!
    However, hmmm-ok-here's one of the first things I ever did on 6 string.It's a cd by Geoff Castle and his"expanded " jazz project its on Turret records I believe. I also did a fun led Zeppelin Big band Project (which also features Tim Ries, who plays sax for a struggling boy band from England called The Rolling Stones) the project is called "Bill Warfield and the New york Fusion Ensemble" play Led Zep! Its pretty crazy! I used a bolt on Smith BSR on that (its available from warfieldmusic.com Another fun project-but no solos, only groove stuff was with Guitarist Jeff golub and very groovy drummer Buddy Williams (he's played with marcus miller, crusaders,will downing and A LOT with Anthony Jackson) "Timebyrd" -its a bit in the Anita Baker vein...cool r&b groove.....Was actually the first cd I ever did in NYC!
    There is a track on Derek Sherinian's last c.d. "Mythology" featuring me with Simon Phillips,Jerry Goodman, and..Allan Holdsworth (a young guitarist from England like me!)-you can hear a clip of that on my website homepage.
    STOP PRESS news though -I do use my Smith a bit on the new (soon to be released) Planet X cd-which will be out soon-but most of it is recorded with my Ibanez basses now. Either the Roadgears or my new custom soundgear/RP models....
    You can also hear me on Derek's new solo c.d. which should be out soon-but that again will be on the 5....Guess I am leaving the high "C"s behind!
    Oh yes! I just remembered-there is a solo on an old joe Deninzon c.d-me and Alex Skolnick of testament fame on that..no idea what label-its been a while-!
