    Does anyone out there have one to sell or have seen one for sale anywhere? I saw one last week on ebay and just as I went to buy it, it got scooped up. It's killing me that it slipped through my fingers.
    Thanks!

    Wow what a steal. That seller had no idea what he had there....none.

    That is only the fourth one I've seen for sale in over 10 years, including mine. Only 29-30 were built, so they rarely pop up for sale.

    Yeah, the price is what kills me the most. Guess I'll wait a couple of years and see if one surfaces. I saw your post about selling yours and then getting it back. That's awesome! If you ever have a brain fart and want to sell it again, let me know ;)

    All you really need to cop Rocco is a P-bass and VERY fast fingers!

    Very unlikely you'll see another Conklin anytime soon. Whoever got that one absolutely stole it.

    That was me! The bass is in pretty tough shape, but it's got some promise. The pickguard was super dirty and there's a lot of oxidation on the metal parts. But the price was low so I can't complain. The preamp is intermittent too; I think it needs new pots. Might just ditch it and go with a new one.

    Nice bass. Wouldn't mind having one. Btw as far as swapping electronics i had all new pots and an Aguilar obp3 installed in my gt7. Debating buying some Delano's for it as well.

    Well if you decide you don't want to put the work into and just want to sell it to me, let me know :)

    Well hopefully the preamp is okay, it's custom spec'd for Conklin from Bartolini (should be badged GTRP).
