    I apologize if he is real, I'm just an idiot then.
    I bumped into the newb FAQ section, and it says he's just some advertisement tool from Conklin. Am I being stupid and taking a joke literally, or is this really true?

    After looking around I think he probably is real.
    I am such an idiot! :D
    But that picture he posted of all his basses just makes my jaw drop.

    Nope, true. Usually it's Brad Johnson or Jazzbo being "JT" but Chris Fitzgerald has been known to step in, usually in theory threads.

    He is both.
     
  6. I don't know how they keep up the pace. A couple years back I was one of the JTs.
    It killed me.
    Come home from a hard day at work, read the threads and give normal replies as GruffPuppy. Then suck down a six pack of Bud and a half pint of coffee brandy just to reread and reply with my JT personality.
    Hats of to the group that is still keeping the JT alive.

    wow....really? never played that game
     
  12. Your on tonight Jazzbo, crap I mean John.
     
  13. JT is real, so real in fact, that he is everything and nothing {Conklin}. He exist solely for the purpose of living {Conklin} life.

    Hopefully this cleared some issues up for you.
