My signature bass:
Spector U.S.A. Bolt-On (5 string preferred, but a 4 is fine)
Mahogany body with Redwood Burl top, oil finish.
Dual J pups, pre-amp with Vol/Blend and 3-band EQ.
vintage style - G&L SB-2 with the tritone pre-amp added. vol, bass, treble, off/on/on with treble boost pre switch, pickup switch, series/parallel for the p-pickup. black, rosewood board, tort guard, #7 neck, gun oin tint gloss fnish on neck. 4 and 5 strings (5-string with 4+1 headstock)
modern style - 5-string schecter stilleto elite as the base, solid maple body, 5-piece neck-thru, ebony f/b, 34" scale, string-thru bridge, active emg J-P-J pickups with vol/pan/pan/tone. the first pan would blend the neck j with the p, the second pan would mix the bridge j with the first pan, similar to how the piezo equipped carvins work. finished in gloss black with gold hardware.
Man, I gotta get some pictures of my Yamaha and get them uploaded. So here goes anyway.
Updated model of the Yamaha BB300 (My BB300 is from 1984) update would be deeper treble side horn cutout for upper fret access.
Schaller half cover tuners
EMG HB in neck Position
EMG P Centered
EMG J in Bridge
Mines wired 2 volume- HB and P with a push/pull pot for the J. It's either on or off and the knob is over all tone control. Sounds limited but tones are quite good.
Leo Quan Bad Ass Adjustable bridge
Dunlop Strap locks
I'd also modify the nut to metal instead of plastic and add a string roller for D&G
I want a fender japan built Precision bass with slab body made of swamp ash and contoured back but slab top. I want that to be a carved body like on the warwick streamer $$ I own also just so my pro model costs another 600 haha. Maple neck with ebony fretboard, brass frets and bone nut carved from the collar bone of a hanged catholic priest. The neck is finished front and back and headstock also with black, graphite and teflon infused lacquer for effortless playing. The bridge, tuners, knobs and screws are all cast from orginal vietnam era melted down AK 47 rifles. It will come in two colors, one is original n.o.s. Ford Model T black paint found underneath a barn in lansing, michigan. The other is cannabis green with gold flake paisley finish, that costs $420 extra. For every 5 instruments made 4 are burned to increase the value of the others.
There ya have it!
i would just have ibanez rename the gsr200 in my name, i swear to god that bass is better than top warwicks and musicmans combined
i would take my Aria pro II SB Integra to Status Basses and have them make one from all graphite, Fanned frets, EMG p/j pick ups,Kahler tremolo
Actually had my 'sig' bass built in 2005. Due to the fact that I am a very, very tiny fish in the big, big bass pond this will likely be the only one ever built.
Things that might not be obvious from the pics:
Aero Instruments pick-ups
toggle switch chooses between 3 cap values
three-piece neck with graphite rods
mid-weight at 8.8 lbs
built by Chris Stambaugh
Only problem is that I don't play 4-stringers any more. May have to re-think my 'sig' bass. Not for sale, btw.
Really? The GSR? Get yourself a real soundgear and you'll change your mind.
