    JT, are you endorsed by conklin, or do you buy all those sweet basses?
    Just curious.

    conklin doesn't endorse anybody - even the signature models, like bill dickens and rocco prestia, are provided through westheimer.

    i do exclusively play conklins, but that is purely by choice - if i found a bass i liked as much or more, i'd get it and play it.

    that fact has enabled me to get my basses at somewhat of a discount, but bill doesn't make anyting for anybody for free
