    I'm thinking of having a bass custom made for me. Are there any luthiers anyone would like to recommend?

    Basic Specs:
    4-string (fretted)
    32 inch scale
    24 frets
    Cocobolo Top
    Neck-thru
    Nordstrand Humbucking Pickups (or similar)
    On-board pre-amp
    Abalone inlay at 12th fret

    Thanks for any advice you can supply!

    I see a nice Alembic Spoiler in those specs:

    No Nordstrands though and a hefty price tag...

    Forgot to mention that Mr. Stambaugh's prices are extremely reasonable.

    Do your due diligence and check out several before you decide. Do not make a decision without checking with Kevin Brubaker. He's a great all around good guy and his basses sound killer.

    Thanks for your input. I am checking out a few luthiers....Stambaugh, CB, Dave Pushic, Rybski, Brubaker and (most recently) Wyn.
     
  7. I would definitely check out Wyn bass guitars. Owner, Randall Wyn Fullmer, is in the process of building me a 5 string with a 5A quilted maple top that should be ready this October. Check out this link to a trailer of a documentary that's being made about Randy and his business. http://vimeo.com/47943947
