Who makes long scale basses? Drop Ab/G# tuning.
I've been looking to get a new 5 string, but I'm not sure where to look.
I play in Drop Ab tuning (Ab Eb Ab Db Gb) and I need a bass that can handle such tuning...you know, for that metal stuff.
I am currently playing a Schecter Stiletto Custom 5 (35 in) and it's just flop city, even with a .145 on the B string.
I know what most of you might be thinking - 'Hey man, just put thicker strings on the Schecter!'
No thanks, I'd rather have greater tension without having to play on big ass steel cables. But anyway...
The highest price I would pay for a new one is $1500.
I've been looking at Dingwall Combustions but I'm not sure how I feel about them.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can get an extended scale bass, preferably 37 inches, for a price no higher than $1500? (Other than Dingwall, of course)
Thank you in advance!
Rock on \m/
