I am having a custom 6 string made for me by one of my local luthiers(Freddy Gabrsek), and I wanted to know what you guys thought of this design... I want to use the bass for solo material, and to chord and walk when playing Jazz. So I am going to go with a 33 fret 6 string setup. I think I am going to have the body designed to be close to the same idea as a Conklin. Extended neck with a single pickup. Specs: -Mahogany body -Deep set flatsawn Maple neck with carbon fiber rods. -Maple fingerboard -Oil, or wax finish on body, with a satin finished neck/fingerboard -Either a Bartolini humbucker, or musicman style pickup without electronics -Hipshot model A bridge, and Hipshot Ultra-light tuners(unsure of black or gold) I don't plan on using any exotic woods with this bass. I want it to be a simple workhorse. I am thinking about leaving out electronics in the bass as well. Pickup to output jack type setup. I am pretty set on this design unless any of you have any suggestions!
