    Kind of sketchy, in the title it says "Custom Conkllin 7 String" but the bass shown is a 8 string.....

    Its a nice looking Conkil 8. I like the top, looks to have the RMC individual bridge system which might be setup for midi and the guy selling it doesn't know it.

    $4500 is the highest I've seen a used Conklin sell for, but I bet its worth it!

    I agree with b'aces high... not as cool as progs.

    BUT, it still would be a wonderful addition to my arsenal. To bad I suck, and would be well overmatched by such a fine instrument. Oh well - back to my four banger. :(

    i've played that bass before and those pics do not do it justice. i'd be all over it except for two things - the nut spacing is wide for my tastes, and the buy it now price is a bit high.

    Honestly, I think that's the best looking Conkline 7 or 8 I've seen.

    Sorry John, Prog, but thems is the breaks.

    That's really nice. I really want to get a Conklin. And this one is only an hour away from my house. I need $4500. Anyone wanna contribute? :D

    I thought I saw that bass in the pics from winter NAMM.. Beautiful bass!! But I agree, I don't think he'll get what he's asking for it..

    Still.. if I had the extra money.. :smug:

    Do you know the owner, John?

    I think it's actually quite beautiful. In fact if I had a lot of money laying around I might bid on it. But alas...

    The wood looks "Dead", if it were more... Crisp, and not so dead looking it would look great IMO.
