Need some input on a custom that I plan to do. I need a new bass, and I know what I want, but it doesn't really exist for sale. So I think I'll have the body and neck made professionally, and do the putting together myself. The concept is as follows: 24 fret neck block inlay white binding Tele-bass style headstock maple neck maple fretboard classic Fender open-back tuning machines Musicman truss rod wheel 6-bolt attachment 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 fretboard profile Ash body (?) MM brige pup Jazz neck pup 3-band active pre-amp Gotoh bridge active/passive switch '51 P-style control plate no pickguard blonde trans finish P body shape So I want some classic Fender vibe, but i dig the 'ray growl, so I want to somewhat duplicate that sound. I'm thinking the scale might be a bit longer, to accomodate the 24 frets on a P body. I would either have the body completely made according to spec, make it myself from a blank or have it made into shape and do the routing on a CNC router I have access to.
