Conklin GT4

  1. My Friends, I need help deciding on my first Bass. I am considering a Conklin GT4. Any feedback for me from actual owners or users of that Bass?
    Thanks

    i love my gt4! very clear sound. it also balances very nicely with a strap :)
     
  3. I read somewhere that it was great but the sound when slapping could be better... Is that true?

    I believe any bass can be a good slap bass if the bass is setup correctly. Also slap sound or any sound for that matter is subjective, and with proper amp settings and fretted bass can sound great.

    i think the slap sound is great, as long as the strings arent dead.

    I'm also very interested in a GT-4. But there are no dealers anywhere close to try one. The main thing I am concerned about is the weight. Over or under 10lbs?
