    I just got this bass. I had wanted to try a 7, and when this one came up, I snagged it. I've linked the original ad below. As the ad mentions, this one has a few miles on it, but the frets are good, and everything works as it should. I waxed the neck, set it up for pretty low action, and put a set of SIT Power Steel strings on it - the set they make specifically for the Conklins.

    I'm comfortable playing sixers, and didn't really have any trouble playing this bass. However, I think I'll stick with my sixers. So, $550 shipped in a nice Road Runner gig bag. I just put the strings on a couple of hours ago, so they should still have some zing when you get it.

    10 lbs., 13 oz. - a veritable featherweight for a 7!

    That's indeed pretty light for one of these. My last one was over 13 lbs

    :eek:

    Yes, and it balances well on a strap. Also, it has those strap buttons that accept Dunlop straplocks.
