    I'm a total maniac with this idea...most of you wouldn't be caught dead playing this thing on a gig...anyway here is what I want....

    BC Rich Warlock Alder body- Poison Green
    Seymour Duncan 1/4 pound passive Jazz pups-for 5 STRING
    Green LED lights in neck
    Steinberger Bridge and headless neck 34" scale
    Black dice Volume knob only
    3 position selecter switch. (bridge, both, neck)


    Is this a Frankenstein or what? If I ever get the cash, i WILL get this thing made!! :hyper:

    Anyone else with demented tastes like mine? :bassist:

    I have a number of 'oddball' and 3 headless basses and love them, as well as two customs (one headless) in process too.

    If you get the chance go for it. Providing it's well made and set up, and you enjoy playing it, who cares if it's not a P/J or clone thereof? The only negative with something like this is you'll never recoup your money if you sell it.

    One technical point; you said
    Steinberger Bridge and headless neck 35" scale, but no-one to my knowledge makes 35" double ball end strings, so you'd need a good screw headpiece to be able to use normal strings. Otherwise go back to a 34" scale.

    That is heinous. Do it.
     
  5. hey, i'd play it, only i'd make two changes. change the body style to bc rich's mockingbird shape, and keep the head on the bass!
    that would the metal-est!
