Hello everyone! I'm getting ready to have a bass built, and I was wanting to run the specs down by everyone. I'm mostly looking for suggestions or comments - If I've missed anything, or have a setup that won't work, or might work better for me, by all means let me know. I will primarily be playing Rock type music - Live, Aerosmith, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, A Perfect Circle, Tool, NIN etc.... While I don't have unlimited funds to buy/build basses that cover all of these styles - I'm hoping to buy/build one that covers them very as best as I can. * 4 - string active * Jazz Body - Downsized or Standard? I'm thinking downsized. * Ash Body * Painted Black * White Pearloid Pickguard - celluloid * "AAA" Birdseye Maple Neck & Fretboard - no fretboard markers? * Black Hardware * Hipshot B Style Bridge (Better Alternatives? Baddass?) * Norstrand NJ4SE Jazz Pickups * Aguilar OBP-1 Preamp (with passive tone control & Push/Pull Series/Parallel switch) Please let me know what everyone thinks! Thanks!
