Hey Y'all, I'm looking at adding an extension my Steinberger Spirit XZ-2db ("full bodied" headless). It's a MusicYo cheapy but I like headless and I like using it for a backup and travel bass better than a full-sized bass. It doesn't hang comfortably as-is (the neck sticks out too far to the left which bugs my hand/wrist/arm after a while). I've experimented with pushing it to one side or the other, using my Strapture strap (lets you slide the bridge end strap attachment point up-and-down the body) and decided that extending the point where the strap attaches in the front is the best way to make things more comfortable (that will bring the neck back into "normal" position and allow the bass to lay "flatter" against my round belly). Most of the extensions I've seen (Bob Gollihur's extension to his LP bass, ASATman's ASAT strap extenders) attach via the neck screws and are "independant" of the bass body. I can do that but worry about getting the replacement screw size/length correct and holding the neck correctly. The Spirit has recessed individual screw grommets so I'd be replacing probably 2 of those with longer screws and the screws would have to go through the extension, the gap for the recessed grommet, the body and the neck - and I worry about whether this would compromise the neck-body attachment. Another method I'm considering is cutting a "horn extension" and wood screwing it directly to the body. I haven't seen this done anywhere but it seems like it would work. I do worry about whether that would mess up the body vibration at all and "deaden" the bass (it's a pretty lively little bugger). So the essence of the question: What is the best way to move the upper horn strap button out - an extension attached at the neck attachment, an extension attached directly to the upper horn/body or some other way? Thanks for taking the time to read my book here - I'm planning on using some thinner solid hardwood (oak, probably) that I've seen Lowes to make the extension from.
