Hey all, I have some questions for you. I've been designing a custom bass I want to commission in the somewhat-near future, and I would like to find a luthier that is within a few hours of me to build it if that's possible. I am aware of Wyn and Nordstrand, but I don't think either one would be willing to build what I have in mind. The bass I want would be a bolt-on 6 string (Wyn only does neck-thrus, and I don't know if Nordstrand does custom designs) that would hopefully include my favorite aspects of classic and modern basses. This - is very close to what I want, but with a few differences - mine would have a wenge board, Nordstrand big splits, black Hipshot hardware, and would have an ash body with a translucent white finish and a tort guard. I realize that a lot of builders tend to shy away from totally custom projects, and I totally understand why. I'm definitely willing to work with whoever takes the project on. If I had their level of expertise, I could just build it myself right? In terms of budget, I have to set my limit at $3500. This probably narrows my choices, but that's why I'm asking you fine folks! If anyone here wants to take my commission, or thinks they know of a builder who would, please let me know! Thanks everyone!
