I'm thinking about saving up to get a custom Warmoth 8-string built, and have the walnut body carved by Carver Doug in a spiderweb design, similar to JE's famous exploiter basses (i'm too lazy to look up the pics right now, you all should know what it looks like by now ), except all across the body, maybe with a small spider carved on the small wing. And get this, i'd want it with LIPSTICK JAZZ PICKUPS from WD Music!!! I know I hate jazz basses, but they sound pretty good when they're in series, so i'll get it permanately wired in series. Add an Aguilar OPB-3, so there'd only be 4 controls (vol, bass, mid, treble) plus the lil toggle switch for the mids. And in the end, use a Warmoth 8-string bass neck. So in the end, it'd look something sorta like in the attachment (i know, it's crappy quality, it's just to give an idea). Does that headstock work with that body? Because i'd rather have it in a V-peghead. I wonder if they'll do that custom? P.S. This won't happen til next year, if it even happens. I'm on his waiting list, and he won't be able to do it for me til January anyways.
