    1997, Inca Silver alder body, rosewood fingerboard, Seymour Duncan Antiquity II pickups, stacked volume/tone controls and a series/parallel switch, all passive, about 9 lbs, non-original hardshell case. Neck is solid, tone is LARGE, especially with the series wiring engaged. The low end is truely unmatched among the many passive basses I've played. I don't have sound files of it but this bass with these pickups was used to record "Star Weekly" on the TalkBass CD. Since that recording the stacked tone controls and lightweight hipshot tuners were added. The color is no longer offered by Fender and it has a custom smoked black pickguard so it's got it's own look. A couple minor dings but nothing through the finish. It plays well, sounds great and looks cool. I'd hang on to it but I'm looking for something with a better slap sound. This bass does big old school tone so well that I hate to mess with it. The pickups can give lots of bite and crunch but are not "glassy" at all. I've enjoyed playing it but am playing more funk now now and need something a bit more refined.

    I'll offer the Hipshot lightweight tuners and matching detuner as an option since I can use them on another bass. Price is $600 with the original tuners, and $700 with the lightweights and detuner. Reinstalling the original tuners completely conceals the small holes (one per tuner) that were added to secure the lightweights.

    Trades I'd consider are 4-string jazz-style basses (prefer alder/rosewood, natural or sunburst). Plus or minus cash either way.

    Looks like I've got a trade in the works but if that falls through I might be interested in the Conklin. What model do you have?

    Nick - Not sure what you're asking about the neck. Can you try again?

    I should mention that there is a trade in-progress. I shipped it yesterday.
