    Was having a "dream bass" chat today and we cam up with this bass. What's the closest spec you can think of in production.

    35" scale 4 string
    MM/P pups
    J neck
    Perfect hands off balance
    Medium weight (8-10lb)
    Active/passive switching

    So guys, does it exist?

    What would your dream be?

    I have no idea if that exists, but my dream would be a Jackson Kelly bass with Warwick Corvette string/fretboard/Pup scales and measurements. 5 string of course.
  3. To your exact specs, nope. It would be a cakewalk for most builders.

    You can make that bass relatively easy (34" scale though)

    P bass body
    Route it for MM pup
    Put jazz neck on it
    Install pre-amp on it with an active/passive switch.

    My dream bass is pretty simple:

    P body, slab style
    Jazz neck, maple fretboard
    PJ pups
    Lacquer finish in a funky color (orange, purple, vibrant green or turquoise)
    Black pickguard
    6-8 pounds total
