    Is anyone else even more scared of JT now--he's one guy and he owns as many Conklins as that entire Cult owns Foderas. :eek:

    I need my wooby.

    Yes but I wouldn't call Conklins outrageously overpriced ;)

    Not that Conklins are cheap but still...

    I could own about 30 fenders for the price of my 3 basses...
     
  9. Aren't Foderas and Conklins pretty similarily priced? I recall that a bolt on 4 string custom shop Conklin lists at about $3500 or so.

    The 6 I spec'd was about 6 grand. I don't know if that is really any less than a Fodera.

    Hmm...I've gotten lower quotes on conklins personally...

    Besides Fodera just raised their rates AGAIN.

    Just for the record, JT conklin collection is worth nearly waht all the foderas in that pic are worth. In in earlier thread he valued them at 50$-60$ grand, and some of them cost upwards of 6500$ if I'm not mistaken.:eek:
     
  18. Geez! That's more than my net worth! I could go back to college, get my degree, and go back and get a masters degree too!
     
  19. LOL :D
