    *SOLD* Thanks Roy!!!!


    I just acquired this on trade and decided I am waaaaayyyy over my head with this. I thought it would be killer to have a fretless 7 string but the truth is I should have a 5'ver or a 6 string at the most(and the 6 string is probably pushing it)! As far as tone and the fretless neck this is honestly one of the better basses I have played and the fretless job is superb!!! So I am going to put this up for trade for an equal value 5 or 6 string(or I can +/- cash as needed). Here are links to the pics of the bass amd info(thanks Sean and I will take some new ones asap):

    Just as a reference the trade value I have into this is in the $700-$750 range. I can do +/- cash for the right deal...
    Here is a short list of what I would be after:

    Spector Rebop(5 string or even possibly a 4 banger)
    Yamaha TRB5/1005
    Higher end Ibanez's(SR700/705 and above)
    MIA Fender P/Jazz bass(4 or 5)
    ??????


    Feel free to PM me any reasonable trade offers as for now this for trade only. Also feel free to PM with and questions and thanks for looking!!!!!

    oh man, how I know that feeling! I had one of these years ago and just couldn't handle the super high range or shoulder pain it caused. I've since dropped the fretless idea all together.

    Bump for a killer (heavy) fretless. Be careful with the locking input, I broke a few cables in my time with it. Good luck in the trade
     
  3. As the guy who just traded this with him, I feel a little bad that I love my end of the deal and this wasn't for him. However, he and I seem to be in agreement that the bass will make a killer for someone, it just wasn't us. I have a few pics too if anyone wants them, feel free to PM me. Great guy, great bass, lets find this GT a home where it'll get the play time it deserves.

    Thanks PatO and Sean..... I have been asked what if anything in specific I am looking for trade. Here is a short list, but not limited to what I would put high on my trade bait wants:

    Spector Rebop(5 string or even possibly a 4 banger)
    Yamaha TRB5/1005
    Higher end Ibanez's(SR700/705 and above)

    I am wanting to stay close to the value of the Conklin but again willing to work something out for the right deal......

    I've got a Fender Aerodyne 4 string Jazz Bass, or a '97 Fender 4 string P Bass that I'd consider working a trade with. Would also want a couple o $$ for the "P".
    Let me know if you're interested.
     
  9. Ask any questions my way as well It was my bass originally
