    After much deliberation and consideration I have decided to sell a bass I said I would never sale... and here it is:
    A beautiful and awesome 2013 Smith Black Tiger, 5TNV631213, 5'er!! Although I could say this bass is in near mint condition, which it is, I will disclose that is does have a few very minor very small dings (I’ll try and capture them in the pictures) and extremely minor player’s wear/rubs. I had this bass inspected, fret dressing and setup by Ken Smith Basses, LTD.
    Plays like butter! Sounds amazing! Low action! Absolutely no issues with this bass!

    Specs:
    Figured Walnut on Tiger Maple with oil finish

    Five piece Laminated Aged Hardrock Maple and Ovankol/Shedua neck

    Macassar Ebony fretboard with MOP top and side dots

    24 frets, 34 inch scale, 18mm string spacing, 1 3/4 nut width

    Gold Smith Hardware & Dunlop flush mount straplocks

    Smith custom pickups, preamp

    Smith HSC

    Smith strap

    Less than 10 pounds

    Sale Price includes shipping USA

    No Trades (well, unless you have a killer 5'er Roscoe or Alleva Coppolo, then maybe)

    Very nice. What does 34-35 inch scale mean? Aren’t Smiths all 34”?

    You'd be better of measuring the length from the nut to the 12th fret, then doubling it. This will give you the right scale length. Simply making a bass longer without making the fret length correspondingly longer will make a bass with terrible intonation (unless you like playing out of tune).

    How well does it balance on a strap?

    Really nice bass.

    This bass balances good, but I'm accustom to using 3 1/4 to 4 inch bass straps with suede backs.
    Which reminds me, I forgot to include the Chocolate 4 inch Italia strap w/suede back and Gold strap locks to the ad.
