I'm a little on the fence about this, but here goes. This is a Sukop from 1994, and it looks and plays just great. Some nice features on this, including neck-through construction, brass nut, dual Barts and Bart preamp, 2-band EQ, ebony board, jazz-width neck, Gotoh tuners and more. See the earlier TB listing in the link for more detail and some great pics (better than I could ever take). http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/...ul-feeling-sounding-looking-playing-*-539648/ I would put the condition at a 9/10. Some very minor wear is noticeable if you look very closely with good lighting, but then who ever does that anyway? Comes with a Music Man hard case that shows some normal wear on the outside but is clean inside. Price now reduced from $1,700 to $1,500 shipped to CONUS. No international. Not looking for any trades, so I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't tempt me with them.
