    The last inventory Barkers, plus a few used and unusual basses, are for sale and will be posted here.

    Take a look at #89, a fretted four string instrument. The B1four is where the Barker reputation was birthed. 34" scale, rosewood fingerboard, maple neck, Duncan pickups (passive), that astonishing sustain, depth of tone, and "overtones on overtones" stuff that comes from the chambered body, all here.

    All of the Barkers listed here will be shipped with stand, stand bag and gig bag, set up and ready to be the musical tools they were intended from the beginning to be. They are sold without warranty, but that should cause you no worry. If there are any cosmetic issues that take an instrument out of the "factory new" category, those will be noted with photographs.

    #89: MSRP, $3795 Your price, $2800.
