    [/SIZE]Conklin GT-7, flame maple top, with extremely easy playability. I upgraded the pre to the 3 band bart system. Controls are now, volume,push/pull/active/passive,... pan,... push/pull/mid select,... stacked bass and treble. The bass plays very easily and sounds wonderful with the bart upgrade. It's in extremely clean condition, can only find one pinpoint ding about 4 inches from the input jack. Speaking of the jack, it is the only cheesy point on the bass. Replaced the locking jack with a regular one, and didn't have a jack plate that would fit. I fabricated one, and it is a rather ugly, but fully functional, bastardization of a les paul jack plate, all I had around at the time. The only other issue is the plastic ring bushing on the E string is split, including pics of both of these minor "issues" below.
    I love playing this beast, but I'm 55 and having some shoulder problems. Doc wants to do surgery, I'm holding out for divine intervention instead.:bag: Bottom line, she's just too heavy for a geezer like me to be gigging with, somewhere around 14 lbs, a true chunk. I'm asking $850 shipped, no case or bag. I could get a new case for it for somewhere around $50 if that would make a difference in the sale, bringing it to $900 shipped in the lower continental 48 states. I might be interested in a trade on a nice 4 banger jazz bass, a Lakland DJ 4 would definitely get my attention! Also looking at amps,...markbass sd800, or the other end of the spectrum, a nice tube head.
    I don't have a paypal account and only accept USPS money orders as payment. Western Union or any of the others have to be deposited and clear, taking anywhere from two weeks and up, so USPS MO only please! Now here's the pics.

    Trades considered for a nice 4 banger jazz, or either a markbass sd800 or a tube amp.

    I'd probably have to pass on the Carvin, looking mainly for an outright sale on this one. Thanks.
