Barker Basses in inventory, ready to find a new home
Our first example is the value leader, as some folks call the, um, less expensive example of their products. And this is. And they're wonderful basses, if I do say so myself. I own two Barkers, play both regularly, and one is a Brio.
It's a stock instrument: alder front and back, alder chambers, with a walnut/alder stripe on the front. Four strings, frets, and our custom p-bass pickups. Basic, reliable, fun to play, easy to handle. The list price is $2595. Street price $1995 plus shipping.
And for something completely different (thank you, Monty) here is a B1four, the original Barker Bass, the one that brought the words "quality construction" (or equivalent) into all the early conversations. Cherry front, alder back, alder chambers. Side dots for subtle locators. Strung up with LaBella black tapewounds. Sweet and expressive. List is $3895; street price $2995 plus shipping. It could be on its way to you tomorrow.
There are two ways to pay for a Barker Bass: Paypal or a check in the mail. Either works fine.
There will be more examples of in-stock basses appearing here regularly, plus updates on custom builds (just for variety).
