Hey !! I was originally planning a custom bass with a Graphite neck but Now having played Modulus and some other grephite neck'd bass ( Moses ?? ) , I've come to the conclusion that nothing sounds and feels like wood . SO I went to the Warmoth website and did some research on woods and this is what I think could well be my dream bass . These are the specs : NECK : Style: Deluxe 5 . 4+1 Headstock . Neck Wood: Padouk Fingerboard Wood: Wenge Orientation: Right Handed Nut Width: 1 3/4" Back Shape: Asymmetric Fret Size: SS6105 (Stainless) Tuner Ream: BML Lite (17mm) Inlays: No Inlay,Side Dots Only Pre-Cut Installed String Nut: GraphTech Black TUSQ XL Radius: Straight 10" Scale: 34 in. Fret #: 22 Mounting Holes: Standard 4 Bolt BODY : Model: G5 Bass Orientation: Right handed Wood: Walnut on Swamp Ash Rout: Rear Rout Controls: V-V-T-X-X-X Bridge: Hipshot A - String-Thru Body Top Finish: Clear Satin Back Finish: Clear Satin Jack Rout: 7/8" (22.23mm) Side Jack Hole Binding: White Pinstriping Neck Pocket: Standard Bass Pocket Mounting Holes: Standard 4 Bolt Countours: Contoured Heel / Tummy Cut / Forearm Countour Battery Box: Double Battery Box What do u luthiers think of this ? Is this a good combination of woods or do u think its all too much rubbish rolled into one bass ? I plan to install the Seymour Duncan Passive phase 2 NYC soapbars on this bass and also hope to put a Mike Pope on board preamp in this . What do u think of this ?? I dont plan to do it immedietly , I'll have to wait at least a month more since I'm extremely busy now . Cheers !!
