Other 'dream' basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bassteban, Mar 10, 2005.


  1. Name a bass manufacturer- not custom, more like Fender/Carvin/Warwick, etc. Describe the bass you'd like to see them build. For me, a Warwick FNA-6 wide-neck & carvin Bunny Brunell, also truly wide. A Warwick singlecut might be cool. Anyone?

    A US Spector NS2 in a deep, rich purple colour. Gold hardware, ebony fingerboard, 18V active EMG P/J set up and bold, colourful abalone 'crown' inlays.... Mmmmm...delicious! :p :D :bassist:
     
  3. I'm talking about a bass w/features not offered by the manufacturer- something you couldn't buy 'off the rack'. For instance, I'd love that Spector, but I'd want 34" scale & (of course)wider spacing for my ham-like hands.

    Hmmmm...how about a US Spector 4 string, with a jazz bass dimension neck, aero P/J pickups, a John East preamp, deep flamed green with a dark rosewood board, abalone inlays, and chrome hardware.
     
  6. That's what I'm talkin' about(the double neck Cirrus)!
     
  7. I'd like to see Spector NS 5/6 string basses with wide 19mm spacing.

    Spector 5er with a 2" nut. Keep the 17mm string spacing, or whatever it has now.

    Spector 4 strng with 1.75" nut, and the same narrow spacing as the 5ers.

    ...Does this make me insane? I'd like to think so.

    Man, that is really dreaming :D but how cool would that be ..... Fender finally getting into a 6 market? If Fender made a 6 fretless with 19mm spacing, active/passive, 35" scale I'd never have any GAS of any sort again :rollno:
     
  15. OMG a Warwick singlecut... or a Warwick ERB, or a ERB singlecut?

    GAS...

    GAS...
