Hello TBs, I plan to get a new 4 string bass. I personally like some following configuration: *Neck: maple fingerboard, stainless fret, multiple piece neck + graphite reinforcement, 24 frets. *Electronic: versatile preamp + humbucker(soapbar) pickup. Then I find kiesel/carvin bass (LB70, X44) may fit my requirement. It cost around $1300 to build a X44 without any fancy option for cosmetic. My concern is the price is a little high, and its resale value is always not good. So I was wondering if ordering a new Kiesel/Carvin bass is a good idea or not. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
