    You would have more luck pursuing a luthier rather than having one come to you. These people run a business and don't have time to be searching threads for customers. Go to them.

    You absolutely need to check out nordstrandguitars.com. He builds incredible instruments at very reasonable prices. His quality is on par with Elrick and Fodera. No sh*t. He's presently building me a singlecut fretless pink ivory four. He's absolutely the best kept "secret" in luthiers, in the same company as Rob E (not that Rob's any secret!)
    He's at 909-277-2435.

    There's this guy Wishnevsky who'll make a bass out of anything.:D

    This, by the way, is the first time I see someone who wants a bass custom built without knowing by whom. Why do you need a custom bass?

    No idea if they are any good, but I love the look of them and his philosophy on the industry.

    Worth a check..

    I haven't read a ton of Carvin comments here,
    but in general I think they make a very nice instrument. Check out their web site.
