    There is no real "fixed" term, but generally it includes small run "customizeable" basses generally from small luthiers (as opposed to large manufacturers).

    For example a Fender Custom Shop bass probably wouldn't be called boutique, but a Sadowsky (essentially the same bass in terms of features etc) would be because its from a small shop.
