    So I drew this up in Illustrator and have talked to Chris Stambaugh about it and I think its almost about to start being made. I think it would really rock. Quick specs would be:

    5 String Fretted 35" scale
    28 Fret (Low B to High B)
    Around 5 piece neck-through (Dark Wood, Maple and Padouk)
    Wenge Fingerboard
    Swamp Ash Body
    Possibly an Idian Rose Myrtle top, haven't seen it but Chris says its stunning
    Barts + Aguilar (probably)
    Gold hardware
    Maybe one inlay on 12, or 12 and 24
    And a big double plus for Chris's style and perfection added to these specs.

    So I think I also want the poly-gloss finish. See I went to a friends yesterday and he had a Spector, nice bass but it was un-polyed. I noticed that its starting to accumlate small hair line style dents. Unnoticable from far, but up close it bothered me. Actually if anyone has polyed verses un-polyed boutique basses they want to show off. Please go right ahead.

    Lastly, by the way, IMHO, Illustrator rocks Photoshop... but they're both Adobe, so we can all get along. :bassist:
