    Spotted this on the Smith Facebook page. Looks like the Brubaker connection is bringing some new direction.

    They had transparent finishes in blue, black and red back in the late 80s that always caught my eye.

    I asked Ken if that’s still a custom option and he said wood should just be wood.

    At some point he also against single cut designs and said he wouldn’t do that to his basses but that changed as well.

    Im guessing his son John and perhaps Brubaker are allowing for more flexibility in customizing.

    How sweet would a short scale Smith be?

    I'm waiting for a light-weight chambered neck-through Smith bass. Never say never.

    Has anybody received a Ken Smith/Brubaker instrument yet and if so what are the thoughts on build quality and overall experience with ordering one?
