    If you want truly ultra modern, you're going to have to expand far beyond the list you have. For me that would mean using alternate materials, current generation electronics (read: Fishman Fluence system or anything paired with a Darkglass preamp), headless or non-traditional headstock shape, use of CAD/CAM, fanned or true temperment frets, new body design, less common finishes, or a combination thereof. This means you are looking at companies such as BassLab, Strandberg, NS Design, LeFay, Aristides, Gittler, Spalt, and the like. Basses such as the Kubicki (Ex)-Factor and Steinberger L-2/XL-2 should also count as ultra modern, especially the latter as there wasn't anything like it before.

    And it isn't like the old guard didn't go nuts either. Remember, Gibson built this, which I would remark as ultra modern:

    If you want truly ultra-modern, Etherial Guitars has you covered. I haven't seen any basses from them, though they do say they build them and I would love to see their take on one
