Ok, so I was thinking David Pushic, but then I came across this site. There's obviously many complaints about him, and some praises as well, but in the price range I don't want to chance mistakes. Now here's what I'd like: 5-String Neck-Through Bartolini Electronics (All) ABM bridge 5 layer BODY (Curly Koa / Maple / Wenge / Maple / Koa) I would want the edges sanded away exposing the various layers. 7 piece NECK (Macassar Ebony / Maple / Bubinga / Maple / Bubinga / Maple / Ebony ) Ebony fretboard POSSIBLY LEDs ran in the neck (I know it looks tacky but I really do play in a lot of dark rooms, and it seems like it'd help) To top it off, elegance, curves and a bass you can lust after for years and years. I've looked at Ken Smith basses and those are just phenomenal, but, a bit too expensive. The most I'd like to spend is 1500, but I could be pushed further fairly easily. Any suggestions? It was TalkBass that made me reconsider DP. Maybe you can help me consider something else. Maybe I'm dreaming about all those features for under 2k, but maybe I'm not. I'm looking for something really special, a wish bass. I'm open to criticism on wood and part choices as well, really I just want some feedback and suggestions, thanks to everyone.
