Here we have a 2013 ( 7/18/13 ) build , a Black Tiger with the vintage Smith body style we all grew up with. This bass is MINT , honest to God.
- Maple body core
- Crotch Walnut top
- Walnut back
- 34″ scale Maple / Walnut neck
- Macassar Ebony fret board
- OHSC with Smith paperwork
- 9lbs, 9oz.
This bass is alive acoustically , which is a very good sign. Some Smith basses do not strike me this way , maybe it is the Maple body core ( vs. Mahogany or Walnut ) that explains this resonant vibe ?
The Smith site says the street price for this bass is $5,350. I invite you to grab this like new exceptional example , and save a wad of cash vs. new.
Has your S.O. ever come home to say how much she/he saved as a means to rationalize a pricey purchase ? The table is now set and has been turned for you. Look how much you saved !
