    wow, that's a beauty!

    Man, between you and JT @ BSIV, we might have to rename it the Conklin Bass Summit.

    I'm trying to rack up FBB's to counter it, but you guys are way ahead...

    Congrats on that.

    Congrats on the bass. It looks awesome and I bet it sounds just as good with those Lane Poors in it.

    well, i'm glad it went to a good home, although i was originally going to get it. finances just couldn't permit. that bass is very sweet - i played it back in the day when it was first made for jake. very nice bass indeed.
