    All of that on a Walnut B.C. Rich Warlock Style Body from Warmoth. For my neck, im not sure of what type of wood to use, but i know im going to go with the Ebony Fretboard with 24 Frets. This bass is of course going to be a 4 String and im hoping this bass will be perfect for slapping, which is what i do most of the time i play. I need expert advice if this is all worth the $2,000+ il be paying for this and if i should change anything? Also what would be a good type of wood for the neck? Thanks For Everything! :D

    You might want to consider a swamp ash body (rather than walnut).. if it was me, i'd be going for a solid maccassar neck on that.

    Whatever you end up using for woods, its going to be one FUN instrument.... :)

    Hehe, I like the laser part. It would be funny if it scared people off because they thought it was a gun in the dark during a gig.
