Well I just got my new bass and I also got a new job at which, by summer's end I should make about $2500. So I decided to put some away and use the rest for a DP Custom bass. Here are the specs I e-mailed him. Please feel free to make suggestions or comments. 5 String Bass Woods - Ash body w/ quilted maple top( I would like an exhibition grade 5A top if you can get it even if it costs extra. Something like this http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1507060&a=11380078&p=40021788) 7 piece neck (Walnut/Maple/Ebony/Maple/Ebony/Maple/Walnut). Pau Ferro Fingerboard. Hardware - Gold Hardware. Metal knobs. Schaller Bridge. Strap Locks. Stock tuners. Neutrik locking input jack. Stock nut. Plastic flip out battery holder. Electronics - Seymour Duncan Hot Stack Jazz Neck pickup + MM style pickup. SD 3 band eq with slap contour.( On a side note. Is it possible to connect the slap countour switch to the jazz pickup also and add a volume control for the jazz pickup so each pickup has it's own volume control? Also, since both pickups are passive, can you add a switch to go passive and bypass the battery and preamp. Custom Options - 35" scale Laminated Headstock w/ same wood as body. Custom body and headstock shapes. (I have included pics of a headstock and body that I like. I know you can't copy them but maybe you could change them slightly so their not exactly the same. I can't draw so I figured I'd show you what I like with photos.) Custom MOP inlay at twelfth fret and on headstock. BTW, I'm not including the pics I mentioned but I will tell you that they were of and MTD 535 body and an Fbass headstock.
