I am looking to invest in a Conklin fretless 7 string as well as a (used) Carvin fretless 6 strin....the Carvin I am getting for a deal, and the Conklin I want beacuse I am getting bored with the 4 & 5 strings. I am no master by all means, just a player looking to expand my creative flow. My Favorite axe is my old faithfull, Ric 4001 which I have owned since 1976...anyone who has either a Carvin-6/fretless or Conklin-7/fretless could comment!!?? Thanks in advance ! Y.I.T.B.O.T.P.
