OK, I'm really thinking about getting a DP custom five string for my next bass. Here's what I'm thinking: Neck: Thru-body, 3 or 5 piece, probably m/w/m/w/m or o/w/o/w/o. W=wenge, M=maple, O=ovankol. 24 or 26 jumbo frets, wenge board, 34" scale. Narrow spacing at the nut, medium wide at the bridge. Flat board, thin front to back. Body: Swamp ash with 1/2" quilted maple top, Most likely Dave's standard body style. Electronics: two MM-style humbuckers, either Basslines or Bartollini, each with series/parallel/single switch, 3-band eq with parametric mid. Hardware: most likely upgrade to lighter tuners and a heavier bridge. So what does everyone think? I'm looking for a really versitile bass that will do everything from a Warwick-y growl to an old P-like thump. I play a lot of different kinds of music, everything from punk, to metal, to worship at my church. I really love the general Warwick sound (hence the wenge and ovankol), but I sometimes need a smoother sound.
