Wow! Nice collection.
Where are you located?
Dig those Doubles and the box stands... Cool
I'm in Florida.
I would also consider trades, though I'm not gassing for anything right now.
the roscoe is a 35"?
Is that melt 7 34 or 35 scale ?
The Roscoe is 35" and the Conklin 7 is 34"
The Sadowsky now weighs 7.4 pounds. Prior to removing the pick guard and the D-tuner it weighed 7.75 pounds. I will include both tuners. The clear pick guard is all I have.
Dings, dents on that melt ?
The Conklin 7 "melt" was built for Ron Rummage it can still be seen on their website <http://www.conklinguitars.com/time_capsule.html>
This bass had been played by Ron as his main bass for several years and has player wear. Ron had Bill Conklin check this out for issues before I purchased it. I have owned this bass since about 1999 and it is in the same shape as I got it.
So there are cosmetic issues such as thumb marks near the low string between the pick ups, slap marks on the body,and a scratch on the quilted maple.
On the back there is also wear including a hair line that Bill Conklin checked out.
trade for the conklin 7? pm me!!
The Sadowsky is sold and on the way to Texas.
Lots of interest in both 7 strings.
No love for the midi bass or the Conklin 5.
All pms and emails answered, thanks.
Well, it's either the McD's I ate last night or it's GAS. Bump.
That peavey is the hotness.
Thanks for all the interest in both 7s, they are still available.
I have answered all emails and pms.
The Conklin 7 is sold!, Thanks Flavio.
Thanks for your interest in the Peavey MidiBass, I do not have the Peavey sound module.
get an eye for the Sidewinder 5
The Peavey MidiBass is sold and on its way to Chad in Texas.
There is still interest in the Roscoe with a couple of deals pending.
TRBman thanks for noticing the Conklin Sidewinder 5 it really is a special bass.
Oh! Too late to the party!...
Hey, whoever bought the Sadowsky Spalted J....if it doesn't work out to be a match
made in bass heaven let me know! I would have loved to have been first in line for that one!
If I was a real bass player that roscoe 7 would've been a Christmas in march
