Inspired by this thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=468851 I want to do my own 4 to 8 string conversion. Yes, I know I can buy a low-end 8 for this price but I like the custom/project aspect of this. I am looking for a bass that: - sells used for $300-400 max - is relatively wide at the nut (P-Bass thickness or wider) - has a large enough headstock to accommodate the extra tuners This Ampeg is great, I think an Ibanez musician would be good but they have skyrocketed in price lately. Anyone got ideas for me? Thoughts about doing this?
