    Conklin Sidewinder 8 string.

    Solid cherry body with a spalted maple top, satin clearcoat finish, bubinga/maple neck and 24 fret macassar ebony fretboard, 35" scale, Conklin custom pickups with a Demeter 3 band preamp. There is a crack in the fretboard that occured during a particularly cold winter when the humidity got down really low. A second smaller crack is next to it. I have a ramp for this bass as well but never got around to installing it. I of course will include it with the bass. Conklin hard/soft case. (Retail $5050)

    That is a Killer price for anyone who may be interested in a very well made high end ERB.

    The Coklin site in the "cherished challenge" section said this bass was valued at $15,000 :eek: ... Thought the $5050 listed in this ad sounds right.

    Irregardless, this is a smoking deal and a great looker of a bass for those in the ERB market.

    BUMP!

    Hey, seeing that on the website would make it easier to get a good insurance quote, I guess.

    I heard/saw a Conklin (a 6'er, IIRC) being used on a gospel concert DVD, and it really caught my ear, I've been mildly curious about them ever since. 8 would be a bit much for me, but at a price like this who wouldn't be tempted to give it a try?

    Just to add, eventhough it's not listed here, the hollow 8 string could be had for an incredible price as well!!

    Hell, hit me with an offer and see what happens..

    ;)
