    Are there any angled body basses, have you seen one or know a luthiers who makes them? By angled I meant if we took a three piece body, the middle would be straight, but the wings are angled towards or from the middle piece.

    Cheers

    Yes something like this, I'm building a bass and trying to angle it to it's more comfortable to play closer to 1,2 frets. Btu the idea I have is to angle it so that the neck angles as well, more like the G & D strings well be leaned towards the belly not from it.

    Thanks so much, that's exactly what I had in mind. Now second question would be, doe any one here own one of these or played , if so what is the comfort level compared to normal design.
