    Isn't that nice looking? Is that custom or "mass produced" like the GT basses?

    I have been thinking of selling my Steiny if it prooves to be too much trouble to maintain... Maybe what I get would go against something like this. It sure is a looker! :D

    You just won the "Best Quote When Taken Out Of Context Award"!

    On a different note, I saw a 6-string Conklin on the BassNW website the other day... very pretty... I had just never seen a 6-string Conklin before.

    That is a sweet bass, and the price isn't bad, either, I don't think. I wish I wasn't saving up for so much other stuff right now, I'd be REAL tempted to give BassNW a call.:rolleyes: ;)

    That is the first Conklin 6 I have seen, too. Other than that, it has been 4's, 5's, and 7+'s.

    You can find plenty of 6's in the gallery on their website. They just don't make a Groove Tools 6(although they almost did:()

    If you want 6, you can only get a hand job.
