    I'm selling my Conklin GT5, which is in perfect condition. It is completely stock other than the straplocks that I had added at the store that I bought it at.

    Conklin GT5 - Natural finish
    Bolt-on neck
    34" scale
    24 medium jumbo frets
    16" fingerboard radius.
    2 Conklin Active soapbar pickups
    Volume, Blend, Bass (cut/boost) and Treble (cut/boost) controls
    5 pc Wenge/Purpleheart neck w/ Purpleheart fingerboard
    Swamp Ash Body w/ flamed maple top

    This beauty gets fantastic fingerstyle and slap tones. The fingerstyle is very warm and full, but not too thick or boomy. Great for funk or jazz gigs, but it's certainly not limited to those genres. I will also add that the neck is extremely comfortable. IMO it has perfect dimensions. The B string is quite solid and does not rattle at all.

    I paid $799.99 for it new in late July '03. I'm looking to get $400
    + shipping for it.

    edit: i'll let it go for $450 + shipping
    edit2: forgot to mention: no trades please
    edit3: $400 + shipping
