    Everybody who knows gear can think of basses that companies should make but don't. Here is my list:

    1. Stingrays/Sterlings fives w/19mm string spacing or at least

    2. G&L JB-2 with five strings & 19mm string spacing

    3. Fender Jazz V & Precision V with Sadowsky style neck profiles and string spacing

    4. Passive Sadowskys

    5. Fretless G&L Tributes and Ibanez ATKs.

    Hey, that would be pretty funny if Fender basses started emulating changes, neck profiles, etc that Sadowsky and others have done.

    After not finding the basses that I want...I started making my own from Warmoth. Newest is a P bass body with a tele neck...5 string, with Nordy dual coils in it.

    I would like to see the MusicMan Sabre come back into production. It will never happen, but I'd love to have a replica or something. Also, Fender should offer the classic colours on their Jazz basses. I'd love a sonic blue jazz w/ pearl bound and blocked maple board.

    a 34 inch scale ona 55-02 would have sold on becoming a lakland user once again. right nwo i really want a new 5 string, but dig the 44-02's that ive played so much that they are tempting me as well.

    i think there would be a good response if fender released a 5 string fretless jazz bass as well.

    Oh, yeah! And how about a Fender semi-hollow along the lines of the Thinline Telecaster? I wouldn't mind a straight up passive American Standard P/J Fender either, in both four and five string versions.

    Warwick need to let Status Graphite make the B1 Buzzard again to stop the Entwistle fans complaining!

    I would love a 5 string Explorer shape bass with 19mm spacing - I'm hoping that Warwick will do one eventually. Alembic would probably do it, but I don't even want to ask for a quote on that one.
