    Where can I buy (in SE England preferably) some kind of DIY 5 string bass with all the parts that just needs assembling or whatever? And is it possible to buy a SDGR copy that is better quality in kit form? I have a '96 SR305 but although I lke it I want a really individual kind of bass but with a SDGR kind of shape but perhaps a slightly wider string spacing (pop n slap, I have huge hands) in a natural finish.

    You could try http://www.brandoniguitars.co.uk/ - the site only shows 4 string p's and j's but it may be worth an email,

    Or of course their is http://www.warmoth.com/ - they do deliver to the UK (mines due soon) - check out the thrift shop for the best prices.

    Have a search through talkbass for Warmoth.
