what would be/look like, all that stuff. Any bass that you think displays your personality.
Fender Jaguar Bass
Delano Humbucker in the Bridge, Delano Jazz Bass Pickup in the neck
Completely Passive, and instead of the active controls, put in a built-in fuzz
sweeeet, they should invent an on-bass effects switch..if they haven't already
geddy neck(instead of black inlays, it would have bright pealoid)
daphne blue p-bass body, with the controls just like a j-bass, white perloid pickguard
duncan lightning active pickups
and 105 90 80 60 roundwound strings
anything i didnt mention would be standard parts
White P-bass body with Nordstrand P/J pickups, bleck pick gaurd, black body binding, jazz neck with ebony fretboard, perloid inlays, white binding. 3-band aguilar pre where the V/V/T knobs would be, and on/off rocker switches at the top for the pickups.
I'd go with the Geddy neck as well, but in birdseye maple and abalone inlays, with a smaller Jazz body (thinner and smaller) with a quilted maple top. Color choices would be all be transparent, so you could see the woodgrain. Choices of active or passive electronics, chrome, black or gold hardware and definitely a Badass bridge.
Definitely an ESP. I just love them.
fender jazz, mahogany and bubinga, fretless unmarked, basslines sjb-3's audere preamp, badass II BRIDGE
Boutique. You don't even hafta be famous to get your own signature model. Just order it.
Tobias, bubinga/wenge/maple 9-piece neck-through, solid figured bubinga wings, black hardware, ebony unlined fretless, bartolini pickups with East preamp. All of which is available now, except the preamp.
Hey, it's only money. I could probably put this together for, oh, maybe $3500.
P-bass body of mahogany
Jazz Neck profile of birdseye maple
Pearl Blocks and white binding (on the neck only)
A dark sherwood green finish w/ matching headstock
Lindy Fralin Pickup
Fully Passive with top notch wiring, pots, etc.
THIS is my dream bass
I have a dual Bassonality, both LeCompte style.
A clone(same weight, feel and sound) of my 64 Precision(lightweight Alder, 1/4 sawn maple/Brazillian RW), exept with a Candy Apple Red, or sparkle blue finish, with a matching headstock, and Martin Style snowflake inlays on the fingerboard.
That would do it for me.
Or maybe a Fireglow, or Blueburst Rick 4001 ( gotta have the skunk stripe down the middle) with a chrome covered Jack Casady p/u in the brige position, and a toaster in the neck, and a non laquered fingerboard.
doubleneck 8/4 rickenbacker bass. It would look pretty much like a 4080 except both necks would be bass necks. 21 frets on each neck with skunk stripe (shedua I believe), crushed mother of pearl triangle inlays and cheackerboard binding on the body. Stock ric electronics. Neck pickups would be toasters bridge pickups would be horseshoe pickups. Not sure about the finish...maybe burgandyglo.
I'd have a Ric 4004 style very much like my Lemmy signature but with black hardware and skulls/bones/general evil mayhem carved into the walnut body wings instead of leaves/acorns/vines. Ah, what the heck....also 24 frets and a 5 banger.
Maybe an all maple ES-335 style bass, with EMG humbuckers and the EMG BQS system. Kinda like Peter Hook's bass...
Probably a white Jaguar with a blocked and bound P-bass neck.
Either that or a Jazz with a P-bass neck, and onboard two-band pre.
Alembic hand made copy 6-string made to my specs Bartolini pickups and controls. Hand made bridge and tail piece from polished brass maple wood grain finish through the body neck. I don't know if it will beat my rick but i will certainly find out. (it's in the planning stages at this point).
surf green fender jaguar (with slightly deeper cutaways) matching headstock... same neck + cream binding...well, maybe a maple fretboard option too... a push/pull tone pot that engages/disengages an "overdrive capacitor" ( i was gonna do this to my jazz bass before i sold it)... ooh and white pickup covers (maybe some dimarzio model j's with creme covers)...i'll probably have more stuff when i think of them!
