    body - ash p bass body natural finish
    neck - 32inch scale jazz bass neck with a slim back maple finished in vintage tint. no fret markers
    pickups - not too sure although im fairly happy with my seymour duncan spb2's so il go for them. nothing too fancy.standard VT pots with a nice input jack
    hardware- chrome hipshot cloverleaf tuners and a hipshot bridge
    tort scratchplate, chrome knobs, chrome dunlop straplocks

    its not too crazy, i love playing my p bass more than any other bass but i would love a 32inch scale neck on it.. i could do a warmoth if i wanted to i suppose!
  3. Mine's easy:
    Fender AmDeluxe J-bass, 35", 22 frets, ash body, 6 string with hipshot detuners for the low B and E.

    Ok, mine would some kind of a Fender "starcaster" bass :
    Hollowbody with center block with the shape of a Fender starcaster guitar, jazz bass neck with rosewood fingerboard, 2 bartolini soapbars, passive electronics, hipshot lightweight tuners. Color would be natural or light sunburst. Headshape would be left to the luthier to express his creativity.
    I may have that done one of these days.
  5. Okay, let's see.

    Michael Kelly Club Custom 5
    Spalted maple top
    Mahogany Back and sides
    Same preamp and pickup already used, but also a rickenbacker-style pup where the soundhole is,
    A soundhole behind the bridge on the shape of a crescent moon
    23 mandolin style frets on an Australian Blackheart fretboard
    And the standard Club Custom inlays

    I think I would like to see some kind of G&L l2000 JB hybrid. Jazz body with l2000 electronics. With the series/parallel being a series/parallel/single coil, plus on the volume knob another single coil option like inner coils that functions only in parallel. And my neck choice would a bird eyes gun oil tint maple neck that's bound with a match headstock. All in some kind of purple sparkle.

    There is no one Signature that would capture what I like to play ...

    Dude of course EB does endorsements! John Petrucci, Albert Lee, Steve Morse, and I could be wrong, but I believe Johnny Christ from A7X has a new signature Stingray. Don't stop believin'! Maybe you'll get that bad boy made one day!

    G&L SC body enlarged to bass proportions. 1 big bad MFD bucker right next to the heel of the ebony boarded #8 neck, L1K knob layout/pre. Would be a thump monster. Finished in either their new Margarita Frost finish or aged white with matching headstock. But hell if I'm endorsed, both! Oh pipe dreams...

    Nice! Mine would be G&L also. It woud start with an L-1500 with the #8 neck (1.5" nut, 12" radius). For mine, G&L would build a noiseless, large pole MFD J-type pickup, which would go a couple inches closer to the neck, a la Sterling HS. It would have the L-2000's preamp, plus active buffering and a blend pot for completely progressive pickup blending. We'd also need a drop tuner for the E string.

    And then we'd have the Comanche bass, with THREE split-coil MFD pickups and the L-2000 pre.

    I'll give this a try:

    - Lots of strings.... i mean LOTS.
    - Some video game theme
    - Be capable of extreme violence and assisting in the delivery of a litter of puppies

    Oh, and it would have freckles too.
  18. My signature bass would be made of the wood from the blood stained giant spikes Vlad used to impale his enemies upon, stings made from the re-forged steel of Excalibur, bridge crafted from Thors Hammer, paint infused with the blood from Countess Bathorys' bath, and the pickups created by the mighty Vulcan in the Forge of the Gods.

    IT WOULD BE the best bass for metal.:bassist:

    Hmm.. I guess mine would be a cross between 70's style fender and a ken smith. So I'd start with a 22 fret bolt on maple neck with bound 7,25" radius ebony fingerboard and block inlays. Ash body with flame maple top. Pickups would be two nordstrand NJ 4's. One in the 70's jazz bridge position and one placed at the position where ken smith/ peavey cirrus have their neck pickup. Top it off with john east preamp and it would be done.

    AWESOME is not a strong enough word to describe that bass! What kind of pups are in that? I see the jazz bridge pup but what are the others?
