    Some of you might recognize this as Vision's bass. I bought it from him in August. I dreamed of owning a Smith for years. Well, I finally got one but, unfortunately, it just doesn't fit me physically. I just can't get comfortable on it. I have no other choice but to sell. :bawl:

    What Vision wrote, 'Okay, this is a 2008 Ken Smith BSR5GN. The specs are the same as the Black Tiger - figured/crotch black walnut with tiger maple core, Macassar ebony fingerboard, series/parallel switches, you know - the works. I ordered this from Ken Smith earlier this year, and it was delivered to me in April. Includes the original Smith hardcase and all case candy (wrenches, Smith strap and gold straplocks, Smith polish and cloth, paperwork, etc.)'

    Wow, I just bought one of these new 2 weeks ago! It definately feels diff than my Sadowsky J5 but I got used to it very quickly. I will be rockin' it in church tomorrow! Bump for a Great bass... I LOVE it!
  3. Bump for a great bass...never should have gotten rid of mine:bawl:. Worth every penny.
  4. Man, thats a shame. I sold my Smith because my right hand would go numb while playing it due to the lack of for arm contour. I feel your pain.
