OK so I probably won't order it for another 8-12 months, but I am in the shopping stage for a custom 6'er. At first I thought I would get a Carvin, just because I've been ing over thier catologs for years, but now that I found Conklin, I have fell in love once again. Keep in mind I haven't played either and this is a MUST before I buy, but hopefully some of you who have played one or the other (preferably both) could give me some insight on how they compare. I heard Carvin's pickups are kinda iffy... and I know Conklins are a LOT more expensive, but they are also more customable. Is there a real quality difference? Anything I should know about either company? Is "you get what you pay for" true in this case? Thanks guys.
