that is the question. In my search for the perfect 34" scale 5-string fretted bass (perfect for me at least), Smith seems to pop up. I played one at a shop awhile back, and I have to admit it was pretty nice. It definately has a distinct tone, but it sounds like it would sit nicely in a mix. Does anyone know bridge spacing and neck width at 24th fret? I'm looking for something narrower than a KL, but perhaps a bit wider than my Zon. Also, do the necks tend to be fairly shallow (thin front to back)? I'm mostly interested in the bolt-on versions.
