FS: Sukop 4 string fretted w/spalted maple top and birdseye maple fingerboard! This has been my favorite bass for some time, and I just love the thing. This bass is light (must be <8 lbs), 34" scale, strung with Fodera light gauge nickel strings, and just a joy to hear and play. Asking $1700 + shipping; I'll consider offers. The bass will ship in gig bag and be well-packed. Will trade for Zon fretless 34" scale 5 string but prefer cash. It's had a lot of use, and the heavily spalted maple top has some fine surface lines/crackles (if you see Sukop's website, he explains that this is pretty common on his softer woods, and can be easily sanded out; I never bothered). It's got an ash body, maple neck, bartolini soapbars, and Sukop preamp. One ding on back of headstock (corner), which is not visible from the front. This bass is simply a fantastic instrument. I just play my 5 string more these days and taxes are looming large.
