    I have a few, however, they are somewhat "obsolete" at the moment.

    My conklin 11 has been in the works since 2003. :meh: :help:

    It's partly my fault. It's probably only 2nd to John's doubleneck as far craziness.

    This thread means nothing without pictures of JT's collection. I doubt anyone would mind seeing it again. ;)

    Hi John

    You have 2 or 3 custom Conklins right ? :bag: :D
     
  15. What could you have possibly ordered that would take that long? :confused:

    Must be pretty sweet :D :hyper:
     
  16. Naw, they're all just stock models.

    :D

    yes, I've always found funny that there aren't many Conklin owners on TB, but Bill keeps building them for sure!

    Well I'm happy to announce that my 9 has been fedExed yesterday heading this way :)

    after almost 4 months after completion. :bag:

    waiting for that first bag company (undercover bags) was the main problem, the supposed order never arrived, after Bill agreed that it was pointless to wait on them, he got a fitting keyboard case in one week, and cut a foam layer to the shape of the bass, and voila!
