Default Looking for info of this bass

Hello,

A friend of mine has this Ken Smith bass and he’s planning to selling it because he has a injury in the wrist that prevents him to play.

He doesn’t remember specs, model, or any related info necessary for selling it.

You can see some pictures of the bass here:

Serial number is: 6G117484FW

I want help him, but I’m not s Smith Basses expert, so I need help, too…

Could anyone tell me what specs does this bass have (woods, electronics, pickups, etc…)?

What would be a fair used price?

Best!!

In 1994, it was called a BT6G. Models, names and specs change over the years.
