And i got to say it was the GREATEST bass i have ever played... It was at a local shop who had ordered it for the showfloor. Its a five string with 3 piece maple set neck with a quilt maple top, rosewood board, Ken Smith humbuckers, Active 3 band eq, and a brass nut. All i can say is holy crap! I have never played a better sounding, better built, more comfortable, and just all around awesome bass ever. I am not use to playing fives but this one made it seem easy. All of my earnings from this day forth are going towards raising $3,000 for that bass. Any one else here own a Smith? opinons?
