All right, I'm looking to replace my Thunderbird, and I'd like to get another bass for around $500, and my problem is, I know exactly what I want, but I can't find a bass that meets what I am looking for. I'm willing to save up more and get a more expensive bass, but I don't want to blow $3000 on a custom. I'm looking for a bass with an ash body, preferably available in red or white, with either a Peavey T40 esque, guild pilot, or some "standard" look ( ie, P or J bass), but light, with a thin neck, as in from palm to fretboard, with J bass style string spacing. I could probably build something like this myself, but as I have never done it before it would be nice to see if there is a production model like this. Thanks.
