I am the 2nd owner of this bass. The player's wear pictured came from the original owner who toured with it a few times. Everything works as it should on this bass. It plays well, and the electronics have that killer Smith tone. I'm thinning the herd, so this is a For Sale Only listing. The bass will be shipped in a hard case to protect it in shipping. It is priced about $450 below what nicer condition ones usually sell for (so no low ball offers please). This is your opportunity to own a great Smith 5 for way less than $2500. Price includes shipping within the lower 48 USA states.
