Just put one on layaway today. I really dig it. Smith's take on a Jazz Bass. Sorta! Anyone else have any experence with this model?? I've owned a few Smiths in the past-CR5G, BT6G and know what those do, but this is my first ride on this model. My biggest complaint, if you could call it that, with Smith's, were they are super identifiable. The "Smith Sound". Now, don't get me wrong, it's one of the best tones around, but not exactly me. I'm more a Jazz Bass type of tone. So far, in the shop this thing kills. I was looking around for a "back-up" for my Fodera and wasn't planning on spending a lot of cash, but this one is used and in excellent condition. And at a killer price! I was looking at around maybe $1K (hoping for less actually) and this came in a bit higher than that, but once I played it, I knew. I bought it about 30 seconds after I plugged it in. I would have bought it without plugging it in (did that with my CR5G), but was curious as to how the single coils sounded. And they sound great!! And the neck on this thing......whew!!!! Mr. Smith, I know you've offered this model for a while, but man!!! Another sweet one from your shop!! Can you build a bad bass?!?!?!!! Pretty plain walnut top and a 3 piece maple body (maple body wings with a maple center block), gold hardware. 3 band pre-amp. The web site only lists solid body wings on this model, this one has a top. Anyway, when I get pictures, I'll post them up. 'Cause I know the rules: "It doesn't exsist unless there are pics!" Give me a week or two!
