    Hey, ive always known that conklin were good basses. I got to play on one for the second time this week and i want to get one i know there from anywhere to 500 to like 4,000 or so but im looking for a good 4 or 5 string for about 1,200-1,600. I would like it to have a nice wood work such as flamed maple or burl. If possible put up a link to the site that has one with these specs.

    Conklins don't run that cheap unless you're getting a Groove Tools model (click here to see- .Conklin Website). The cheapest basic model you can get in a four-string is the New Century, which'll run you about $2200 with no extas (and no fancy top either.) Jeff's right on with the Peaveys as far as price and woods. You can get a DP Custom with your specs for that price range too.

    I removed the Peavey post. I didn't read the title of the thread, or the first post closely enough.

    Thanks. They were closer to the price range he mentioned than any USA Conklin will be.

    keep in mind that you can find pretty nice custom conklins used in your price range. just gotta keep your eyes peeled.
