CONKLIN Groove Tools GT6, originally a GT7 that became a GT8 and now is a GT6, the missing link.

Conklin GT6 (ex GT7) (3).jpg

Would prefer selling it, hence the low price, but trades are always welcome, especially for a fretless bass : 4, 6 or 8 (no octave strings) strings unlined are my preferences.

If you want a wide strings spacing bass, this one is for you. Sounds like a full Bartolini fitted bass, with loads of bass and precise highs. Also has SIMS Custom Led's installed.

Asking price including shipping fully insured with tracking number to your place in these European countries (ask for other countries) : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (excluding French overseas departments and territories), Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom : 999 Euros !!!

In fully working condition and in excellent overall condition.

Here are the specifications :

Body : 2 pieces swamp ash with a bookmatched flamed maple top

Neck : bolt on 7 pieces of wenge and purpleheart

Fingerboard : purpleheart with side (and also front) Led dots

Frets : 24 (no wear at all)

Headstock : 3 + 3 shape (angled) with butterfly and cross inlay back lit by a Led

Pickups : 2 active Bartolini P4

Preamp : Conklin/Bartolini 2 bands

Controls : volume, blend, bass, treble, switch for the Led's

Tuners : Gotoh

Bridge : brass Warwick two pieces

Strings spacing at bridge : 20 mm

Nut : bone

Strings spacing at nut : 11 mm

Knobs : metal

Scale : 34 inches

Hardware colour : black

Truss rods : 2 (fully working)

Output jack : locking Neutrik

Finish : gloss

Land of craftsmanship : Korea

Serial number : none

Year : discontinued in 2005 is all I can say

Weight : 5.4 kilos

Action : from 1.5 mm under the C string to 2 mm under the B string at 12th fret (can go lower, but was perfect for me)

Will come with a brand new semi-rigid case modified to accommodate the very long bass side horn.

Non-smoking environment as usual.

I'm only selling this bass because I don't need it anymore being a fretless player and it's too heavy for my broken back.

Here is the long story short : I got it as a GT8, but the strings spacing was too narrow, and as I like wide strings spacing I decided to have it converted to a non existing GT6 aka the missing link, removing the two extra tuners, cutting the unnecessary headstock and replacing the existing tuners with better quality real Gotoh. I ordered a made to measure Hipshot 20 mm strings spacing bridge that was never made after 3 months, so I opted for a Warwick 2 pieces bridge instead. This bass is really easy to play and really deserves the name wide neck.

The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has two new batteries (one for the preamp and one for the Led's) and has been fitted with a brand new set of D'Orazio nickel-plated steel round wound strings (30 - 45 - 65 - 85 - 105 - 125), which fit the bass to perfection and will also be delivered with a spare set of these exact same strings fitted on another bass for less than one hour.

Here Billie Jean played by Johan when it was still a GT8. Hope you don't mind @therealting : Billie Jean - Conklin Custom 8 String Bass.mp3

What you see is what you get !

Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with no visible dings.

Don't hesitate to ask for more.
