I posted ages ago saying I never thought I would have GAS again... you all told me how wrong I was... It's back sooner than I thought it would be! I've advanced a lot on my bass recently and I've suddenly got a hankering for a 6 string for that extended range. I have around £2k to spend on a bass... I'm gonna go and try some 6's out at some local(ish) shops and see if I like them... but what I'd really like is a custom shop Fodera, Spector or Conklin... Does anyone have any information on the length of time the above models take to be made, deliver etc and what kind of price range I'd be looking at? A question to anyone with a Conklin (my preferred custom shop model) - are they categorically nice basses to play as I have never experienced one? Is there anyone who's played one who doesn't rate them? Are they good for slap? Do they appreciate in value as they get older?
