After first introducing it a year and a half ago, Oktober Guitars is now making a production model of their DevilWing bass guitar in addition to the U.S. Custom Shop version. The bass was designed by Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and is aptly part of the company’s Von Frankenstein line.
The DevilWing features set neck construction with a mahogany body and neck. The rosewood fingerboard sports 27 jumbo frets with a “bat” taper at the highest frets, while mother-of-pearl bat inlays serve as fret markers.
The bass features Oktober’s Suckerpunch soap bar pickup and black hardware to accent the flat black finish.
The Oktober DevilWing Bass Guitar is available now with a factory direct price of around $699, while the U.S. Custom Shop model goes for $3,500. For more info, check out the Oktober website.
