New Century Series Guitars

     Understanding that not every player has the need for a completely custom instrument or even the budget to acquire one, Conklin is proud to offer a limited production series of guitars and basses, priced within the reach of virtually anyone. These instruments are not mass-produced, down-grades of our renowned signature and one-of-a-kind models, but are standardized versions of our most requested designs and options. The NEW CENTURY SERIES™ guitars and basses are hand made to the same exacting standards, by the same craftsmen, using top grade hardwoods and name brand hardware, right in the same shop as our finest custom instruments. By limiting options, instead of lowering quality, we are able to streamline production and lower costs. Every instrument produced at Conklin features the same craftsmanship, playability, and lifetime warranty, regardless of price.

    We took our most popular standard features from our Custom Shop guitars and packaged them into a more affordable version for you. We know not everyone needs all the bells and whistles so here are a couple straight forward instruments that look and play great, and sound incredible.

     We start with a solid Cherry body with our most popular body style, the Sidewinder. From there we take a multi-laminated neck of Maple (6 strings) or Maple and Bubinga (7 & 8 strings) and put a Bubinga fingerboard on it. The New Century Series Instruments feature 16 inch radiuses and jumbo frets. Also our necks feature our exclusive "Off-Sides" Mother-of-Pearl dot inlays. We use a 25 1/2 inch scale length on our 6 & 7 string guitars and a 27 inch scale on our 8 string guitars.

     Once we have the body and neck all shaped, routed and sanded we are off to the paint room. We give all of our NCS instruments a sweet Satin Black finish.

     You may be wondering what the differences between the Club and Tour models are. Well they are the same with the exception of the added Figured Maple pickguard and matching Figured Maple headstock cap. The Club model has a matching Black headstock.

     Once the instrument is painted it's all ready to go together. We use only the highest quality hardware and electronics with our NCS instruments. The NCS guitars are available with Black or Chrome hardware to compliment your instrument to your taste. All these guitars have fixed string-thru-body bridges and top notch electronics.

     We equip these guitars with custom hand-wound Lundgren pickups from Sweden. We also use a special 5-way blade style switch with the two humbucker pickups. This allows for the standard full humbucker tones in the bridge and neck positions but the inner three positions allow for different combinations of one coil from each pickup. This allows for an extremely tonally versatile instrument. Not to mention all positions are hum-canceling so no annoying noise like your standard coil-taps. Besides your 5-way secret weapon you have volume and tone controls.

     To top it all off we give your guitar a super sweet setup so that your new guitar is ready to fire up straight out of the case. The 6 string guitars are tuned standard E to E. The 7 string adds a Low B string and the mighty 8 string adds a thunderous Low F#.
