    I'm looking to get 36" scale, 5-string bass with a P/J configuration. Also, not as important but still worth mentioning is that I would like to get a glossed dark wood finish- something that looks like koa (koa itself may or may not be too expensive for me). Anyway, can anyone point me in a direction? I'm still deciding on whether or not to make it fretless, so you can point out either. Thanks.
     
  2. Check out the Mike Lull or the Sadowsky, I think the Sad is a 34" scale and I think the Lull is 35". Maybe you could have someone custom make it. I played the Lull and it was awesome.

    I've also thought about building my own bass or modifying another. I can find the bodies with the PJ config, but does anyone know where I can get a 36" neck (or close such as Carvin's 35 1/4" though I don't think they sell that off of their XB75)? I would go with a 4 or 5-string. If I had to get a 4-string, I would just put on 5-string strings and drop the G string ;)

  5. How about TB's own Nino Valenti? His basses look awesome and have always received great reviews.

    Thanks for giving me so many options. I also want to see how it could work if I buy all the parts and have someone put it together. I contacted Carvin and they said that I can order a 35.25" scale 5-string thru neck. That is great news, but now I need to find a PJ body that will take a thru neck. Any ideas?
