    They're discontinued, some stores like musicians friend still have some in stock though...

    I love mine. Wouldn't trade it for anything. I had it set up by Martin Petersen of The Gallery / SEI basses fame about 18 months - 2 years ago, and the action is stil SUPER LOW and playable. I took it with me to Houston earlier this year, and now it's back in the UK and there's been no sign of neck budge... Awesome bass.

    I am all about my used GT4. Great sound, in spite of the Mighty Mite pickups used in the 4-string model. Very modern and shimmering.
  5. I mailed Conklin about my GT4 pups....Mighty Mite's interpretation of EMG's, he said.

    Considering the price point, the GT's are sweet and the wenge necks are to die for.

    Too bad the GT line went south, maybe the Sidewinder body shape is'nt for everyone but I dig it.

    Kudos to Bill Conklin for bringing bass "exotica" to the masses, at least for a while.
