    I've been meaning to redesign my white jazz bass for some time now, and I think I've finally come up with a design. So, should I do it?

    -Alembic Scorpion Body
    3435706004_e174f27be8_o.

    -Zebrawood top

    -Same neck that was on the white jazz bass, just with a cut-down headstock to resemble a '51 P-bass

    -Hieroglyphic inlays

    -Jazz Bass Pickups (which will be covered by ebony pickup covers, so it'll look more Alembicized)

    -Bad Ass II Bridge

    -Rewired 2 volume, 2 tone

    -Series/parallel switch

    -Killswitch

    When I get to this I'll be selling the white body (along with 2 controls plates, and 2 pickguards) on eBay.
     
  2. That bass is unbelievable
     
  3. Mate, that is going to be off the chains
    Go for it!
    PLease post when finished=]

  13. As a famous dead baseball player once said to me in a field:

    If you build it,they will come.
     
  14. The Greg Lake Alembic 8-string is really nice. I've seen that in the flesh.

    Your design sounds like a good idea. Go for it!
    And show us pics.
