    Selling my Ken Smith Black Tiger Elite 6 - Crotch Walnut Top.

    Feather Crotch Walnut Top
    Figured Walnut Back
    Figured Macassar Ebony board
    Maple Core
    34 scale
    18 mm spacing
    Original Smith 3-bd BMT preamp with Push/Pull Passive switch on Volume and Serial/Parallel Switches
    Original Smith Pickups
    Original Smith Gold Hardware
    Weight: 4.9kg
    Birth year: 2007

    A wonderful Smith 6-string - typical Black Tiger sound (more towards presence and bite due to the Maple core) with always nice Feather Crotch Top.

    Rarely played. 3-4 very small dings/dongs over the body but nothing to be shown in pics.

    Super fast and low action !

    Comes with non-original lightcase and strap.

  2. bump. What does that equate to in US dollars?

    Please keep in mind that we in Germany have to pay 22.75% on top of (bass value + shipping to EU). That's why we offer US basses at such a high rate - compared to the prices seen in the US market. Looks as if that Price exceeds all serious limits here but that's definitely what it's worth in EU.

    I often advertised basses in the "For sale internationally" forum to address EU Players directly, but I never got a similar response there. Seems that even EU buyers are visiting TB mainly here.

    But - considering the BMTs ... that ones are even worth the upcharge to get them back in the US market - killer Smiths and they don't pop-up very often :D
