well, i'm planning another conklin. i don't know how long this one will take to get started, since i really want to get that gold ritter seal 7 string and i probably will pick that one up first, but this has been ruminating for a while, so i'm going to put the plan together and see what bill thinks of it. 7 string 28 fret fretted neck through b-eye maple board with block inlays wenge and purple heart neck, wenge body. dual exposed-pole duncan mm-style pickups, ala g&l. 3 band aguilar preamp, or else u-retro preamp. not decided on that one yet. rmc piezo/synth melted top with buckeye burl/purple heart/buckeye burl. the middle purple heart will also extend into the fretboard, like this fretless... ...with the matching headstock cap too. gold hardware ah, yes. #11, here i come. someday. i'm actually thinking about trying to get bill to make this one a single cutaway. fodera shouldn't have all the fun, imo.
