    Howdy guys! I've owned a Spector Q5 Pro for a while, and I do love it, but I'm considering making some modifications to it. One of the biggest things I'd like to do is to see about getting the bout/small horn hollowed in further so I can have access to the highest registry with greater ease.

    I understand that on an acoustic guitar, the bout plays a significant role in shaping the sound, but how much does it matter on an electric bass? What if I were to have the bout taken off completely? (Might look silly, I know, but just being hypothetical here.)

    If this isn't the right thread to ask this question (maybe the luthier one would be better suited for it), then please let me know. Thanks for any information you guys have!
