    There's a thread in the Luthier's Corner (I think - or Basses) by someone building a Thompson knock-off for his personal use. Building one for sale might be considered douchey by some.

    Probably. If you're wanting a lot of woodworking to look authentic and keep it on a really tight budget, the rest of the quality might suffer.

    I don't know if they are exactly "replicas" but Scroll basses have that scroll I associate with a lot of Thompson basses. They sure look nice, anyway.

    Adam Stone makes really, really nice ones. Here's a pic of mine (can't help myself) and there's a 5-stringer up for sale in the For Sale section.

    Only hitch is that I don't know if Adam's taking any new orders right now.
