Boogiebass Is My Hero: New-to-me Conklin Is Here!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Dave Metts, May 7, 2003.


  1. I've got to get back to studying, so I'll try to keep this fairly short. Earlier today I took delivery of a fabulous used USA Conklin from TB's very own boogiebass. It's a bolt-on Sidewinder with Lane Poor pickups and a Demeter pre. So far I'm very impressed with this bass (awesome slap tone). It's almost too much for a fairly weak player such as myself, but I love it anyway. Now if I can just figure out how to play it.... [​IMG] :D

    Here's a quick picture that boogie took of this bass a long time ago. I'll be able to take some of my own pictures in a few weeks when I go back home for the summer.

    :cool: Thanks, bro.

    Glad that Conklin beauty finally found its way to its proper owner. I sure dug it during my tenure with it. Sweet!
