    Hello
    Overall a very nice vintage 1985 Smith Not sure if the naming at the time makes this an S-2 or a BT4 but it has the Dovetail. This came back from the Smith shop not too long ago. The bridge and tuners were upgraded, and it has a new truss rod nut. The bass was setup and adjusted.

    It has a few minor dings, and wear on the finish. The bass has been played but cared for. Believe me, it is a monster, it sounds wonderful. I notice the volume pot can be a little scratchy but it goes away with use.

    Will ship in a new, heavy duty, awesome Harvest gigbag, and a nice Smith strap.

    Some specs: Haz labs passive preamp (vol, blend and a tone control, the first switch I believe is a phase switch, the second is an on/off).
    Smith PuPs
    Ebony board w walnut body and maple center block.
    Flame maple top
    Maple neck with thin stringers

    Please look carefully at all the photos and let me know if you have any questions.
    I’ll consider partial trades on the way off chance anyone has an Electrodyne 511, or an API 550, 500 series module.

    Looking for $2575 shipped East Coast, please add $25 for west coast.
    Thanks for looking

    Looks like I’m gonna hold off on selling for now. I’m not ready to let it go.
    Thanks

    Hello, this is a very old thread, the bass is long gone.
