I figure that I should try to get the ball rolling on ordering a Status, even though I can't afford it right now. So basically, I wanted to hear from those who have done it, what the process is. I emailed them to say that I was interested, but I know people here are experienced in the matter and quick to respond. Basically, how custom can you get before it gets to be outrageously priced? I know that the stock basses are not cheap, but what starts bumping the price up ungodly amounts? And how long should I expect before getting it? The essence of the bass I have in mind is a Kingbass 5, leds, bendwell, 18mm spacing. I don't quite know whether I want carbon top or wood, guess that's a factor. And I have some ideas for electronics (active/passive, J pickups) that I don't even know if they'll do. Anyone?
