ok guys. i really need your help here. today i made the decision what project i would work on for my last university exam. as i really love talkbass and come by here on a daily basis i decided that i would include you helpful guys in my project. i got 5 weeks for the project and its about boutique basses. i have to make an information chart that shows: 1) producers of boutique basses 2) their standard-models - 4string,5string, 6string available? Lefty-version available?(+ maybe custom modifications possible? which?) 3) famous players using this model 4) what wood is used for these basses? (body + neck mainly) 5) standard pickups on these basses 6) standard strings on these basses 7) => overall tone+sound of these basses 8) pictures of these basses from you users (this will be quite at the end of the 5 weeks. so please do NOT post your pics right now!) the main thing here is that i have to find a link between the players/procuders by looking at the sound. e.g. i take vic wooten => fodera bass, emg pickups => extremely bright/clanky sound. who also has it? which fodera user? which sadowsky user? ------ i have to find a structure here so things must not get too complicated (e.g. bridges and so on will be kept out right now i think.) it would be greatly appreciated if you could help me make this project come alive. of course you will get to see the endproduct here once it is finished ----- 1 more important thing. this has to be on an OBJECTIVE basis. so no "sadowskies are better than laklands STFU !§§$%!§$%" here please. it also would be great if this one could get sticky for the next few weeks. anybody knows the mod i could pm this request to!? ------ and last but not least. please dont post stuff here unstructured. i will try to be the "mod" of this thread and give you the topics i need to look @ right now. ------- thanks for your great help in advance and lets hope my project will turn out well please subscribe to this thread so you can help me with any new requests!
