This is a "what if" type of question. If you've had GAS over a particular bass but wanted a few modifications to the factory spec, what would they be? Two of my "Wish Basses" are: A. A Musicman Stingray 5 with 35" scale neck and the same double humbuckers and four band EQ that's available on the Bongo. Yeah, I'd like that one. The sound of the Bongo is very impressive, but I'm trying to warm up to the styling. Guess I'm just a conservative stuffed shirt. B. A Fender American Deluxe Active Jazz 4 but with the larger body and 20 fret neck vs. the 22 fret MIA Deluxe Active. Both are pretty, but I sort of like the larger body better. I hardly play above the 12th fret anyway. Another way of putting it would be to have an American Series Jazz with Active pickups and electronics. More trad but with the versatility of active electronics. These only exist in my head, and not at my local music store. I'm afraid of what a custom shop price would be for one of these.
