  2. Isn't 30% off list a fairly typical deal?
    I saw a GT-7 being blown out at Guitar Center for $799.. $50 more for two extra strings!
     
  3. really, John...! only 5 strings what are you thinking??

    He gets a royalty every time he mentions the word "Conklin" and takes a 3% commission on every sale. :D
     
  5. I've played a GT-5 for a set one time. I borrowed it from the other bassist from another group that was playing. We have very similar styles/tastes...so we do the gear swap every once in a while.

    Man...I was totally unimpressed. My Yobias has more mojo, plus better overall construction. Not that the GT-5 isn't good...it's just not $150 better to my hands/fingers/ears. Construction's okay..just kinda rough around the fret ends...overall finish is good..just not spectacular. Kinda plain. No problems...just didn't light a fire.
