    Does anyone know of any reasonably priced custom basses. I'm just about to order a custom warwick but man is it going have a large price ticket. I'd love a Jerzy Drozd or a Carl Thompson but I don't have the extra $6,000. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Define "reasonably priced".

    There are some very nice custom makers out there (Stambaugh, Valenti) that have pretty nice pricing, and there are some others that I won't mention for various reasons (but reading what's just under my name may help...).....

    I think Skjold and Roscoe are good values in a custom bass.

    I know first hand that Roscoe's are an awesome value and I've been hearing quite a bit of good things about the Skjold basses.

    Hoyt!

    I can't find a web address for Karl, but his instruments are wonderful. I have a half-Hoyt.. delicious Hoyt neck and a Warmoth Jazz body...

    If you google Karl Hoyt basses, you'll see some of his work.

    Xyllion has a georgous pair of 32 in. scale Hoyt 6 string basses.
