I was just given a very generous offer to have a custom bass made for me - and the company wants me to get back to them asap with my desires. HELP! I love the sound of my MM Bongo, but I sometimes miss the rubberyness and slapability of a Sterling I sold not that long ago. I like the slap happy sound of warwicks also. Sooooo... Wood: What's a good light wood that will give me rich deep tones. Pickups and electronics: I want the MM/J setup, and I love the Bartolinis I heard on a Lakeland I played about 4 years ago. The Bartolini website didn't help much - can anybody tell me exactly what I'd have to ask for if i wanted those pickups and electronics. Any other pickup/electronic recmommendations for a 4 knob/don't matter how many switch configuration that will give me lots of flexibility and something close to a MM sound? The rest I think i can handle on my own. Although all thoughts and input are welcome. Thanks.
