    Actually, there has only been 2 Conklin 7 strings sold over the past 2 months on the net. I know, as I bought one of them.

    The one that you have at your link

    http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1461791282

    is the same one as the most recent one here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1458166267

    Same seller, same bass, cheaper.

    In fact, his bass looks exactly like a Groove Tools 7 - same wood, same neck, same design. But he does not say that in his ad. Maybe it's a custom Conklin that looks like a GT-7.

    GT-7s are very nice basses for the proce. Great sound, great electronics, easy to play. Most of the people here have only said good things about it.

    I love mine.

    nope. not gonna do it. wouldn't be prudent.

    ;)

    actually, i guarantee that that's a gt7 bass, with updated hardware. actually, that bridge upgrade is a good idea, the bridge that guy used is a good one.

    FYI, There's also been a used one for sale at the North Houston Guitar Center for the past 6 weeks or so. I messed with it for a few minutes and just couldn't get over how wide the neck was. .... 7 strings and small hands. Not a "comfy" combo for me, but others there seemed pretty impressed with it. Seemed a bit heavy too, but maybe it's just me.

    i think you mean "over ebay" right? i mean, there are conklin gt basses for sale at musician's friend as well as many other stores, and i hear from bill that they sell fairly well world-wide.

    Did I really say "the net"? I meant ebay of course. Sorry, I have not had much sleep over the past couple of days.
