Conklin Groove Tools Fretted 7 Feeler

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Bernie Connors, Nov 7, 2005.

  1. Hello everyone,

    I have a Conklin GT7 that I'm putting up for offers. It's in wonderful condition. It was previously owned by Mark Beem and he took great care of it. I haven't played it a huge amount since I've had it. I believe six strings is my limit. For those of you that are in the market for a 7 though, this is the best way to join the darkside. ;) It comes with Dunlop Straplocs and a Comfort Strapp. Also has a fairly new set of strings on it.

    Here's a pic of it with Mark. Sorry Mark, the only pic I have right now! :D


    PM me with your offers. If you have a specific pic request, let me know in your PM and I'll try to get them for you.

  2. which bass is it?
    Why does Mark look so sad?
    Is he doing an impression of JT?

    You do realize Bernie that since you used my likeness without first obtaining permission you'll have to buy one of my basses don't you?

    Mark, if I was an 8 string player, I'd be all about that hollowbody!!

    Wow, Bernie's dropping the 7, Mark is selling two 8's .... :eek: You two guys are a large part of the crew that sucked me into the ERB game in the first place .... :meh: Well. I'm not leaving ...... :rollno:

    Bump for a nice cat who undoubtedly cares for his equipment ......

    even though he can be construed as a deserter .... :D :cool:
  13. Thanks for the props, bud!

    Sorry to be a deserter!! :p I'm just making this bass available to someone that's really going to use it. It's too nice to just sit around.

    I have a huge amount of respect for the guys that sling an ERB for their main axe. I just believe that six is for me.

    Hey Man I just sold the Identical bass on Ebay for $900 bucks! And it had a crack in the body by the neck. Go figure.
