    Hey Pedro long time!
    Gorgeous Smith! You are going to regret this one!
    Pedro is a great guy and an amazing bassplayer -you can deal
    with confidence.

    by the way, you should post an audio clip especially if you recorded your arrangement of “Cana Brava” with the Smith.

  4. Hi alfonso! Hey i agree this one is a great bass man, i will like to have enough money to keep it, but unfortunately i have to let it go.... And yes im going to try to add a audio clip......
  5. I dont have the weigh yet, but it's so far the lighter smith i had play, the best sound i had play from smith too, i had play 4 smith basses already, and this is something else.

    This bass still available
  8. Bump for a beautiful Smith,I think I have been thru many basses over the years ,But always go back to a Smith,Somebody will be very happy with this bass,GLWS.........
  9. yes!.. Several private message but still here.......
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRopGdemIg8&feature=BFa&list=UUicjY6gH0YrvItz3KjJMC8Athis is the audio, Here the color is dead, because it was recorded from a cell but actually the color is much brighter than that..... and the sound it's like really fast and accurate, any player who wants to play fast and with a comfortable action have to buy this bass.... another thing, i think its really comfortable because it's supposedly 18mm Spacing at the bridge, but to me it feels 17.5, i had a lot 18mm before and this to me feel less, to me that helps a lot to play much faster and there is less time to wasted between each string.... weight is less than other smith i had, it's a smaller and more compact instrument too...
  11. I just took the weight now,it's 9.2 lbs
