  1. Just bought a MTD 535, so I'm putting my Smith Chuck Rainey 5 for sale. I have two great-sounding Smiths (one with wide spacing, and this one with the standard 18mm spacing), and this one needs to go to fund the purchase!

    - Standard 18mm spacing
    - Quilted maple top & back, mahogany core
    - 5 piece neck
    - Larger "vintage" headstock
    - Standard 3-band 9v electronics
    - Comes with original well-used Smith teardrop case

    Disclaimers: Some standard finish wear, especially above the neck pickup. I also replaced one of the potentiometers with a replacement directly from Ken's shop (the bass trim pot, if you must know!) -- all electronics work perfectly now, of course.

    Asking price: $2500 shipped (continental US) via UPS/FedEx

    These CR5G'S Sound Great! I sold one few months ago with the same Wood combo and 3 piece body that had Incredible snap for Slap and Pluck as well as fingerstyle.
  3. Thanks, man - I totally agree - it's tough to beat this wood combo.

    Thx to those of you who have expressed interest so far!
  6. Closing the thread. Sold this afternoon - $2600 via ebay (curse you, outrageous fees!).
