    Look for an old BB series Yamaha like the BB2000 or BB1500. I always thought they were some of the best made basses ever. They are pretty cheap used too.

    G&L Tribute SB-2. Bassnw.com has a few left for $400. Great feel, super fast neck, and a great tone. I bought one, restrung with DR lowriders and am thoroughly impressed with the tone every time I play it. Great low end grind.

    Yea i recomend those too.
  7. Look at Fernandes. You should be able to find a used APB-100 on eBay within your price range. I believe that is the model that Rocco Prestia played.


    Better still, wait for the new Conklin GT Rocco model:
    Conklin GTRP-4


    Good luck.

  8. anyone have a clue of when those Conklin GT Rocco prestia models will be available and a guess at the price. I really like the look of those.
  9. dare i say.....essex???
  10. Don't know, but you could call Conklin and find out.

    If you do, let me know......I'd like to try one of them bad boys out.
