What's up TB!
Not sure if I'm asking this question in the right place or not, but I was wondering: Are there any manufactures or local luthiers who will build and finish (gloss/satin, no paint) bass guitar bodies and necks?
The reason I ask is because I have a few sets of pickups w/tone pots that I'd like to use. I've tried selling them, but being that the demand for six string bass accessories is not as high as the 4/5 string counterparts, selling them has been a chore. So I've decided to install them in a bass to keep for myself. The pickups I have are a set of Bartonlini XXM56CB pups and a set of EMG 45TW's
The problem: I don't want to buy a "cheap" bass to mod...i.e Brice bass or other non-descript. eBay bass guitar. The only company I know that offers what I'm looking for is Warmoth, and they don't make necks the way I'd like.
Price isn't such a big deal, I'm not trying to get some super fabulous "custom" body/neck for $800 lol! I would try to build one myself...okay, no I wouldn't, I don't even have a clue where to start
The only other thing I figured was to contact one of the other well known luthiers and have them build a bass guitar for me (probably the best solution huh?) Anyways, forgive me if this has been asked a million times, I've visited this forum maybe 3 times in my TB membership, and thanks in advance for your answers/advice!
