Mike at the shop was kind enough to snap a few for me!!
I know you have been waiting a while for this one...im sure its gonna be worth it.
You ever sell the hollowbody?
Nah.. I decided to keep it.
thats amazing!!! keep us posted.
Yet another monster! Lookin' good Prog'! One of these days I may venture beyond 5 strings.
Wow, Mark! That's looking so nice! Beautiful bass.
when it's done I want to see a Michael Manring-style 'playing 3 basses simultaneously' type tune.
I'll hold one for ya if'n you want.
Nice trio there, JT Jr.
Expect it will be superb. Congrats, Mark!
You're doing another one
You da man! Can't wait to see how it looks when finished. I guess that means you won't be needing your other Conklin hollow body
Ill email you my shipping address.
Just keep an El Whappo set aside for me.. That's my next endeavor..
wow, cool. very nice looking indeed.
I love Conklins...keep us posted Proggy, I really want to see how this turns out. Are you going to have a special finish put on this one?
hey prog could you collect some seeds from the money tree in your backyard? i'd like to plant one myself
nice bass for sure. I hate you
No double-neck. Wuss.
Want to give some specs besides the obvious ones?
This one will be a little more "bling-bling" than my first one.
Here are the full specs
Conklin 8 String bass (Low F# to high F)
Sidewinder body style
Hollowbody construction 3"
Gold Hardware with Q-Parts abalone pearl capped knobs
Maple / Bubinga Neck
Deep, Deep, DEEP Wine red sparkle finish
Individual string saddles
Conklin Signature Pups
Purple heart bound maple fretboard
Hipshot Ultralite tuners
Demeter 3 band preamp
These two things are the bling. Gold hardware is almost as bling as gold teeth.
You know Mark, if you ever get in a fight with someone over your basses, you should let them knock out some teeth so you could get gold teeth with "CONKLIN" written on them on the top front.
What kind of a sound does dragonwood impart? Good choice on the Demeter pre. Sounds like it will be your best one yet Prog.
When are you going to post the pics for the doubleneck? Turner-wannabe.
Just kidding sounds like it will as great or greater than you other hollowbody.
Doesn't your hollow 7 have dragonwood in/on it somewhere?
Yeah, the back and sides are dragonwood.
