questions about conklin

  1. hey guys, conklin has offered me an endorsment. the only problem is that i've never played one. the endorsment is not legally binding, and its not a free bass, i still have to purchase it(at a heavy discount) would it be worth purchasing a great named bass before playing it??

    No and yes.

    I dont think anyone should buy a bass without playing it first, but Conklins are incredible instruments, so I doubt that you will say no after playing one.

    Im sure JT will be popping his head in here to voice his opinion of Conklins.

  3. What I want to know is how exactly you managed to attain this honor? Did you, like, send Bill Conklin a demo or something?

    I have owned a Conklin and I can say that there's no way you could be unhappy with it. They are built beautifully and sound incredible.

    However, I should point out that it would be dishonest on your part to endorse a product you've never used. Please have Bill contact me. I'd be glad to endorse his product.:D

    Just yankin' your chain. Sorta.
