    ive been gasing for a bass with a certain body shape, im not sure what its called, but its like a jazz with a single cutaway on the bottom, or like a les paul/jazz. does any1 know what this body shape is called or any companies that make basses like this?

    Well, there's two types of singlecut, the singlecut, like Geoff posted, and the Tele/Les Paul singlecut, like a G&L ASAT.

    not the ASAT tele type, more like the other two, but more rounded. like a jazz with just the bottom cut.

    ...you seem to be asking a different question than we're hearing. You asked what the name of a body type was. We got that covered (singlecut)

    However, you seem to be looking for a specific brand/model, which was not the question you originally asked. That is not "what's the name of that body type." That is "What company makes a singlecut in a certain style?"

    YES, thats it. that bolin shape is almost exactly what im looking for. like a les paul exaggerated. im not sure if you guys can understand me on this but, maybe more jazz shaped on the bottom, but the precision-ish shaped bottom looks fine. does any1 know of any cheaper ($1000 or under) basses with this body shape?

    im looking for a more exaggerated les paul type body, with a larger upper horn, like in the bolin.
