I know that there was already an ask John thread about Conklin's, but I have a slightly different question. I am looking at picking up a 5 or 6 string and have been looking at the Conklins. I've priced out and played the Peavey Cirrus, Yamaha TRB and the Conklin GT-5. IMHO the Conklin held it's own with each of these at almost half the price. I don't know if this is a question anyone can answer, but how are they able to sell these guitars at such a low price.
