Higher end 'Cort GB5 Custom' in great condition, low action, 34" scale, B is super tight and sounds huge, usual minor marks top of headstock. Comes with Cort gig bag and can be well boxed for transportation if required. New strings about to be fitted. Really is a fantastic bass which i ended up keeping over 2 x Laklands, Stingray 5 and a higher end Yamaha bass - I can't imagine a better 5 string for this price.
This bass had a John East Uni pre amp fitted which improved the overall tone tenfold. It can also be switched between Active & Passive with a very handy passive tone. The extra dip switches puts the Seymour Duncan pickups in parallel with each other and the other switches between active/passive.
Specs from the t'interweb:
. BODY: Swamp Ash with Spalted Maple Top
· •NECK: Canadian Hard Maple
· •FRETBOARD: Rosewood, 15 3/4" Radius (400mm)
· •FRETS: 22 / Large (2.7mm)
· •SCALE: 34" (864mm)
· •INLAY: Rectangular White Pearl
· •TUNERS: Hipshot lic.
· •BRIDGE: EB12(5)
· •PICKUPS: Seymour Duncan SJ5-3N & SMB-5D
•ELECTRONICS: Upgraded to John East Uni
All in all a fantastic bass for the money that I will miss dearly but I need something lighter.
Bargain - now £375 (Have a good box for packing) or collection from Plymouth.
May consider trades up or down for a 5 string bass strictly under 8.5lbs in weight. This one weighs in a exactly 10.2lbs.
Weird camera angle shot (kind of makes the bass look twisted .....)

I am not interested in a trade

If you want to I can make more pictures.
CONKLIN Groove Tools GT6, originally a GT7 that became a GT8 and now is a GT6, the missing link.
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.

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.
