Classics Series Basses The Classics feature timeless styling combined with modern construction techniques at a retro price; completely designed, crafted, finished, assembled and set-up in the USA. Specifications include lightweight and perfectly balanced bodies, carved and contoured for the ultimate in comfort and playability, 3-piece Hard Maple bolt-on necks with Conklin’s innovative “off-sides” dot inlays that serve as a top dot and side dot in one, deep wide lower cutaway for unobstructed access to every fret, top brand hardware, pickups and electronics, a Neutrik locking input jack and a sexy non-glare/non smudge satin finish.

Classic 421

The 421 captures every essence of the most Classic basses and delivers it in true Conklin form and function. For more information click photo.

Classic 421 Inline

The 421 with In-Line Headstock is for those who prefer the retro look and easy access of all the tuners on one side. For more information click photo.

Shaun Munday Model Classic 424

The Shaun Munday model is very similar to the 424 with a couple signature features such as EMG P and J pickups and a 3-band EQ neatly tucked into the traditional looking three knob configuration. There’s a lot of muscle hidden under the hood of this inconspicuous exterior. Just catch one of Shaun’s shows to find out what we mean! For more information click photo.

Club

The Club model 424 and 524 - Simple, basic, no-frills…these are terms that could be used to describe the Club model by Conklin. It is the most standard of our “standard” models; an entry level instrument for the brand, but by no means a starter bass. The Club model is specifically designed for those players seeking the exquisite design, attention to detail and incredible playability of a Conklin, and nothing else. For more information click photo.

Tour

Simply put, the Tour 424 and 524 models are the culmination of our 35 years in the music business. Nothing too over-the-top or pretentious. Just classic curves and traditional touches that humbly tip their hat to the best of the past while incorporating virtually every ethic of our own rich history. For more information click photo.

Session

With its carved top, soapbar pickups and enhanced electronics, the Session model puts the class in our Classics series. For more information click photo.
Cutting Edge Series Basses Although we offer these instruments as standard models, they feature many of the most sought after specifications previously only available on our one-of-a-kind custom pieces such as multi-scale and extended range fretboards, headless hardware systems, luminescent inlays and state-of-the-art electronics. And of course, they are all completely handcrafted in our Springfield, Missouri Custom Shop.

Woodie

Drawing its name (and mojo) from the wood emblazoned vehicles of the surf music era, our “Woodie” model features a figured Maple pickguard for a cutting edge classic touch. For more information click photo.

Funky 5

The Funky Five is what happens when you strap a rocket engine to a street bike. This bass just feels right in every way with its contoured body and narrow neck but hang on tight because when you open it up this beast is fully capable of getting away from you. We stuffed the control cavity full of wonderful wizardry from Bartolini and there’s almost nothing it can’t do. Get down…get funky! For more information click photo.

Short-Scale Woodie 5

Drawing its name (and mojo) from the wood emblazoned vehicles of the surf music era, this 5 string features a Burl Maple pickguard and a fantastic 32” scale. For more information click photo.
Headless Basses It took us a minute to realize the true potential of headless instruments, but ever since we lost our heads, we have lost our minds; we can’t get enough. We currently offer headless versions of nearly every one of our standard 34” scale bass models in addition to our 32” scale Bugout bass and the multi-scale (32” – 35”) Wigglestick.

Bugout Bass

When the gig hits the fan and you have to hightail it on a moments notice, your Bugout Bass is packed with everything you’ll need to survive any musical situation; just throw it over your shoulder and flee the scene. For more information click photo.

CropTop Woodie

Drawing its name (and mojo) from the wood emblazoned vehicles of the surf music era, our Headless “Woodie” model features a figured Maple pickguard for a cutting edge classic touch. For more information click photo.

VYB

If you’ve been searching for a headless that still retains a vintage vibe, our new VYB is the one! For more information click photo.

WiggleStik

This may be our most “cutting edge” bass. We combined high tech hardware and electronics, a 32” – 35” multi-scale fretboard and a headless composite neck. We ended up with a bass that quite simply just makes your butt shake! For more information click photo.

WiLo

For our Big & Tall customers that like their string spacing wide (Wi) and their scale length long (Lo), we offer “WiLo”. Featuring a Mahogany body core with a Maple top, a 5 piece Maple/Purpleheart bolt-on neck, a 35” scale Maple fretboard, 19mm wide Hipshot fixed bridge and EMG pickups and electronics…WiLo keeps it DEEP.

New Century Sidewinder

The “New Century Series” was our first foray into offering standard models that featured some of the most popular options from our Custom Shop basses in a more affordable package. The NCS line has been a major part of the Conklin brand since the mid ‘90s. Now that we are offering a wide variety of standard models, it is time to say goodbye to the New Century Series. Therefore, we felt it was only appropriate to pay tribute to our long-running namesake with the New Century Sidewinder (NCS); available in several configurations from 4 string to 9 string. For more information click photo.

Jason Everett Model

The concept for this bass came about when Jason modified his stock Groove Tools GT-7 bass body with an Om inlay. A few years later he approached us with a very detailed list of specifications for his own original custom Conklin 7 string bass design and soon after, the Jason Everett model was born.
