I'm sure i attracted John Turner´s attention now Tell me if i´m wrong, but it seems like Conklin specializes in more-than-4-string basses. Since not many of the popular brands (fender, gibson, etc) regularly make bases with say, 7 strings, it is obvious that Conklin is one of the leaders on that market. Since they are one of the few that makes these basses, they are probably very good at it. Now my question is, how good are 4-string conklins in comparison with the common 4-stringers that we all know. Would you tell them "Just stick to your 7 and 8 stringers and double necks, leave the 4 and 5 stringers to Fender, Rickenbacker and Warwick, they are much better"? Or would you say that they are also an important competitor in the 4 string market?
