    **AUDIO CLIP ADDED! **NOW FOR SALE ONLY**

    Rare to see a 34" scale Sukop 6er! This is a fantastic, beautiful bass. You need to try a Sukop if you haven't! Mahogany body, maple neck w/ebony board. Awesome burl maple top with matching headstock. Frets are perfect. Everything you want in a 6er. Don't have the exact weight, but I'm guessing 9.5-10 lbs but will weigh if desired. If you're local, feel free to come by and check it out.

    Asking $2500 shipped in HSC.

    For those of you unfamilar with Sukop, they are outstanding playing basses with an incredibly fast neck and tone as good as the best known high end basses. I have a SC 6'er and it has become my primary bass.

    Good luck with sale. If I hadn't purchased another recently, I would be your buyer.

    Thanks Hasadari--if I recall correctly, I commented a lot on that thread where you were deciding between Ritter and Roscoe; my vote was for Sukop! Glad you went that way and like your bass. They are really special instruments.

    You have a great memory. I took your advice tried a couple and bought one at Rudy's in NYC. An outstanding bass that I play every day. Good luck with the sale.

    I will go out on a limb and say that Sukops are arguably the easiest playing basses out there...

    Now for sale only!

    I know the guy who bought this one from Steve Sukop, and I used to play it at his house here in NM. This bass is really great, the 34" makes it about the easiest 6 I have ever played. Bump for a great bass!

    Thanks Kotzman. Here's my first ever bass soundclip done direct into garageband. This wasn't done to advertise the bass; I was just noodling around trying to figure out how to record using an imac... so be gentle, I'm no pro.
