    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.

    Well, it appears that the bass is sold, but I'm keeping the thread open until everything has transacted; I'll delete it shortly after. Thanks to everyone for their time and offers.
