OK. Here's the specifications of what I'd want if I was ordering a Gibson ES-335-style bass to be custom made, or getting my own signature model. Construction / Scale: Neck-thru body/34" Body: Maple Neck / Fingerboard: Maple/ebony Nut Type / Width: Graphite/40 mm Neck Shape: Extra Thin U Inlays: None Frets: 24 Binding: Body Hardware: Chrome Tuners: Hipshot HB1 w/Detuner Bridge: Hipshot TransTone Pickups: EMG-35P4 (N), EMG EMG-35TW (B) Electronics : EMG BQS system (volume/blend/treble/mid/bass) It would be available in black or natural. And if this bass was made by a mass-producing company, then it's fine by me if they want to produce cheaper versions. Different bridges, different woods, passive pickups...it's OK with me. You think that this would be a good bass for me?
