    G.A.S. List:
    I want to build a Chapman Stick (ish) Steinburger (ish) Neck Through instrument With the low string being B and going up as high a a guitar high E. Neck made of hard maple with laminated Wenge, Rosewood, purpleheart and ebony. Full Scale 24 Frets. Ebony or purple heart fingerboard. Carbonite supports. Adjustable truss rod (even though I still Don't grasp hoe they work. Tuning keys on bridge. I would like to develope a switchable de-tuning mechanism for the the bridge so as to go up or down a step on each string. 3 really hot active pick ups and probably a pre amp. Stereo output. Detatchable mahogany wings lamenated with Bubenga to make it look & sound like a bass if need be (lol). I also want to create a detachable headstock for asthetic purposes only.
