    Hi everyone!

    My friend is a luthier based in Split, Croatia.
    He builds absolute beasts, an amazing player too!

    This is his channel:


    He made this bass for me: 73370563_2979739905387032_34823345727864832_o.jpg 75044896_2979740422053647_8052752788792279040_o.jpg Walnut & ash wings, maple & padauk neck, indian rosewood fretboard, Gotoh bridge and tuners, Ken Smith pickups and Aguilar preamp.

    This thing sounds absolutely incredible.

    This is his recent work:
    81136627_3098403843520637_5675943614039982080_o.jpg 81184009_3098404716853883_2594694308787388416_o.jpg 81477456_3098404510187237_273319971981885440_o.jpg
    And how it sounds:

    (camera is inverted, the bass is right handed)

    You can listen to more examples on his YT channel or his IG/FB which is linked down below.

    Yes. You can DM him about shipping info.
    I know he already shipped to US/Canada and across the EU.

    Those are some real nice basses. I could easily go for one, except I have a feeling they're beyond my wallet. :(

    And it sounds just like one.

    this is an older video of a similar build he did back in 2013. but it sounds just like a Ken Smith
    + with the Aguilar pre... phat city baby

    Oh and about 4th of the price!

    His builds are around €2000 ($2190), depends on the overall specs but around 2k.

    Really not that pricey for what you get.

    It’s interesting that you and r_bass2 are having this back-and-forth conversation, seeing as how you’re both posting from the exact same computer…
