    Thats a slick looking guitar, but i think the conklin "look" suits basses better than it does guitars.

    Wow this is an old thread but the only one I could find on the subject. How does the gtg-7 sound? I don't mean to be nosey but what's the going price on those new/used (whichever you know)? They look great and I've had the 7 string itch for awhile now and ibanez just isn't my thang :)

    I think they're fantastic!! Bill (the guy in the pic) has had mine since that pic was taken!! :eek:

    And has since bought one of the tremolo models...

    Hard to find new.. Might want to call Bill Conklin at his shop and see about getting one through him.. The number's on his website: www.conklinguitars.com

    They also creep up on eBay from time to time.. Usually from $350 to $450 depending on model and condition..
