    Well, I hate to admit to GAS, but its true...I need to part with some toys in order to save for a Dingwall. Here is the the story.

    Conklin Gt4 - CONDITION = 8.5/10
    Neck: 5 pc Wenge and purpleheart
    Body: Swamp ash w/ 1/4" flame maple top
    Weight: 9lbs roughly
    Frets: 24 Medium jumbo
    Scale Length: 34"
    Nut Width: 1-3/4"
    Finish: Gloss Natural w/ Satin Neck
    Hardware: Black
    Bridge: Conklin die-cast
    Tuners: Deluxe sealed die-cast
    Pickups: Bartolini MK-1
    Controls: Volume, blend, bass, mid, treble, "Slap" switch

    I purchased this bass a few months ago and absolutely LOVE the feel of this instrument. Paper thin neck, and a phenomenal look to it. I had an issue trying to get it to cut through the Mix of my band, so I put a brand new Bartolini 5.4AP 3 band preamp in it...It helped with the EQ for sure but Im hooked on my Warwick.

    The only blemishes are as follows:
    -Moved the strap lock to the top of the Horn...pegged and sealed the old hole on the back of the body. decent repair but not perfect.
    -very minor belt buckle rash
    -headstock has a TINY mark on the top rear.

    Any questions please feel free to ask

  2. man if it was fretless, I'd be all over it. Been on the lookout for a fretless gt4 or gt5 to match my gt7 fretted. I might get it and have it converted to fretless, let me talk to my repair guy
