In the swr ads what make of bass is Rocco Prestia holding
custom conklin sig.
yep, conklin bass that is the prototype for the conklin rocco prestia sig line.
here's an earlier prototype...
man, i love that bass...
I've played that earlier prototype and it is nothing short of incredible. I think the bass weights no more than 4-5 pounds but it just thunders.
I guess it's a good thing that Bill isn't willing to sell that particular bass or I'd have it, by hook or by crook.
One of these days I will call Bill and see if he can do one of these in a 5 string.
yeah, that bass was _VERY_ popular at the namm show. make sure you go for the pawlonia wood - very light, that's what that earlier prototype was made of. believe it or not, rocco didn't like how light it was - he wanted something a bit more solid feeling, from what i hear.
here's a pic
that thing is sweet.
the GAS is building...
Yeah, that powlana is incredibly lightweight but very toneful. The photo doesn't even show the detail of the birdseye board and how it meshes so well with the tiger flame in the pickguard.
Also, Bill runs the wood from the body up the neck to give it kind of a neck-thru feel.
Hey John, the last that I heard, Bill has a 6 month backlog.
yeah, at least. my wife ordered my white hollowbody 7 fretless as a wedding present in december, and it's still not here. it'll probably be done in a week or two, though, so that's not too bad.
you're right about that rocco prototype, too. that thing was awesome.
