    I have some money (about 2000-2500) to spend on a new bass (well, it needs to be new to me). I want a 6'er, would prefer a single-cut, but beyond that I am pretty open. What do you guys suggest? Thoughts and opinions?

    I like Norstrand, Benavente, R Bass, and similar designs. Shoot me some suggestions here.

  2. Bump for you sir.

    Nordstrand is a good call.. Also Chris Stambaugh would be one to consider. Fbb would be worth a look as well.

    There are many builders out there that can do what you are looking for.
    There was a recent thread talking about single cutaway basses.
    Do a search for it. You will find many photos and info on the different builders.
