This video is awesome. It is a BSR5GN Quilted Maple over Walnut. Would the sound be noticeably different had this been an EG model?

One of each is a good idea, but I would feel like im cheating myself by getting the same woods. Thats why I never got a TNE.

GN vs EG

There is a video on YouTube from Bass freq of a guy demoing a BSR5GN in Quilted Maple/Walnut. That bass sounds phenomenal and is now my target, except that I will get a 5EG. My question is will a 5EG...

Wood selection

I was sitting home practicing my 5TN, and I started wondering. What made you want to use Tiger Maple and Walnut woods? But not only those woods, all the woods that you use. Come to find out, most...

As an owner of 3 Smith basses, I will say that the bass will sound completely different than your first one. It will have a more heavier low end.

If I ever buy another Smith, it will be Quilted Maple top and probably Walnut Core. Either Walnut or Mahogany.

I was trying to lower the action a tad bit, and now I notice I have "dead spots" on the higher parts of the neck. I think I need to bring it in so you can reset it.

bridge adjustment

I noticed on the back of my bridge, there are screws that are somehow attached to springs. Can/should those ever be adjusted? I was trying to set-up the action on my 5EG, to have the same feel as my...

Now that I have the maple/maple, I totally see what you mean. Its like the bass doesn't have the aggression my 5TN has. I don't think my bass has really formed into its true tone yet though.

All my basses are made by you. I think I've been playing my 5TN for so long that I just became one with the setup and feel of that bass. The 5EG, still doesn't feel natural to me yet.

Does it matter with the wood combinations? Because of my three basses, all three have different pickup heights, as well as string heights.

pickup height

Does it matter how high the pickups are, as regards as closeness to the strings?

I agree, that's the point I was trying to make. Its a status symbol because it shows you can afford it, and/or you are good enough to play one.
