    This is the MS series with some really nice upgrades. It is maple neck, with morado board, 3 piece wings (tiger maple with mahogany core), black hardware, 18 v smith preamp with adjust frequencies via DIP switches,series/parallel switches, and accent stringers. Brand new Smith strings and it has a SKB hardcase. THis bass is 9/10 and was just finished in Sept 09. Street price was:

    $4050 (base price)
    $100 (black hardware)
    $200 (series/parallel switches)
    $300 +(3 piece wings)
    $100 (top dots)
    $4750+ (total)


    I love this bass, but I really am in need of a nice 5 string jazz. That said I will consider trades for five string Sadowsky, Allevas, or something else you can run by me. Might also consider partial trades for Genz Benz shuttle 9 and Bergantino AE112s cabs.


    Trade value of this bass is around $3k, will sell outright for $2900 shipped in the lower 48.

    That's a stunner. One of the classiest Smiths I've ever seen. Exactly what I'd order if I were gonna buy another. :)

    I believe TBer Vic weighed it for me at 9.7 or 9.8 lbs.

    On hold for Jerome (Alphaman), so any trade offers are only backup offers.
