    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?"

    sorry about that, i meant to ask the name of the body (already covered) and for pix/info on it. i originally posted this while in photo class so i was kinda rushed... :ninja:

    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.
