Congrats and enjoy.
Thanks and that is very true.
Hi from Finland
Just like mine. Except my BT6 have macassar ebony top. And same year 1990. I'm happy that you have founded maybe best Smith they ever produced
Every time I play it I love it more. I have owned a few Ken Smith basses and all were great but this one is on another level. That Ebony is beautiful, my favorite wood for a smith bass. Im sure it sounds great! Mine was signed July 30 1990.
The last 2 Smiths posted are beautiful!
Especially that Macassar Ebony top...
Yeah that Ebony BT6 is my dream bass. If I ever find one that will probably the only way I get rid of mine.
A lot of Ken Smith 6-strings out there. I wonder which builder would receive the most requests for 6-string basses. Smith must be up there. I would guess Dingwall too.
Posted before but here's some more eye candy lol
I’m going to bump this inquiry. I haven’t seen much feedback from anyone who has purchased one of the newer Brubaker made Smith basses. If you have one, what are your thoughts? I am curious about how the sound, feel, finish, etc. might compare to older Smith basses, especially from a player’s perspective. I’m not interested in any sort of “which is better” comparison but more of a subjective experience. Thanks for any insight anyone can provide.
I watched the You Tube Video from Scott's Bass Lessons re:vintage Ken Smith 1984 BT4 bass.
He should get commission because after I watched this (too many times) I had to have similar and was fortunate to find a Ken Smith 1985 BT4. Scott's bass is # 151 and mine is # 243 which means it was made in Pa. not NYC and Vinny Fodera was not involved. However, this bass is beautiful and has same preamp as Scott's. It is fantastic!
Be still my heart
It’s hard to find a Ken Smith bass that isn’t fantastic.
Applying for membership with:
1995 Ken Smith CR6G Fretless
Western Flame Maple Top/Back
34" Scale 3 Piece Hard Rock Maple Neck
Lined Ebony Fingerboard
3 Band 9 Volt Smith preamp
Will always be my favorite fretless.
Just about plays itself...
That is stunning. I've never played a fretless Smith but I can only imagine that they are superb.
