    just show your conklin and tell us the story! I emailed bill conklin about it and he told me that its on page 4 of their catalogue!

    Groove Tools are really nice for the money. i played a used one and i was really tempted to snag it for $200. it played beautifully and looked just as good. i didn't get to plug it in, though.

    I just traded off for an Ibanez BTB, but I rather would have liked to have both. But, alas, no money.

    Yeah man, I think I've seen you in the hallway of the 1140 a couple of times with that bass. I play in Flo and the Adrian Kelley Band, and in the fall I'm gonna play upright in a band with this INSANE trombone player/singer.

    Radio Knights, eh? I've seen posters in 150 for you guys . . . what kind of music you guys play?
  19. we're kind of a mix between ben folds, bruce hornsby, maroon 5 and jimmy eat world.

    confusing...yes...so Ill just say piano driven power pop
