Just throwing out the line on this one. I was playing around with my old crappy Samick 5-string tonight, and I found that it's actually suiting the music I'm playing these days better than the Conklin. Basically, if anyone has a nice 5-or 6-string to trade or would like to make an offer (or PM one to me if you'd like), feel free to do so. The only flaws are a small fingernail mark on the back on the neck behind the 2nd fret, B string side, and a small finish dent on the body that's only visible if you look for it. This is a great bass (looks and sounds great, and is much easier to play than you'd think) and I definitely won't mind if it didn't sell, but my curiosity has the best of me. Feel free to ask any questions as well. Specs are: 34" scale 7-piece neck-through (maple and purpleheart purpleheart fingerboard Swamp ash body with curly maple top Bartolini NTMB electronics with mid-selector switch.
