    A bass which senses temperature and humidity and self-adjusts its neck accordingly, so that it stays set up how I like it.

    EBMM-style truss rod wheels standard on every bass, regardless of brand/model/price.

    Basically hybrid of the Effectrode Blackbird, the EBS microbass III, and the bassbone OD. Basically a full EQ compliment on two channels, both having tube tones, with a tube generated OD (with easily accessible tubes for rolling), with a compressor and tuner built in too.

    If it had a switch for "modern" and "vintage" sounds, or an SVT-sound switch, that would be great. Thanks.

    GBX amplifiers were fairly popular in Canada in the late 1960s.

    Has a coffe/smoothie/snack counter as well as a shop with strings, drum heads, cables, pedals etc onsite. Can rent hourly or lockout rooms monthly. Not sure about open mic nights / shows, but I haven't been there in several years.

    A high quality iPad interface with audio I/O and midi in/out that also powers the iPad. The iPad has more processing power than most laptops, harness it as a pedalboard / amp sim as we're mostly headed towards going direct anyways.

  13. A combination instrment wireless unit/IEM system that is affordable for most musicians. I see sooo many people out there, especially the younger kids, playing loud with no ear protection. For whatever reason, most IEM's seem to be far more expensive than wireless units, so I'd like to see a unit that is wireless for the instrument, and can be mixed over a little into heapdhones so players can hear themselves better without having to turn up.

    I would also want an automatic string tuning system that can be switched to manual.

    Wide availability of multi-track recordings of songs, so I can mix the various instruments how I want to. Let me play along to the original recording EXCEPT for the bass. Or drop everything else down so I can hear the bass more clearly to learn the line.

    Heiko at Basslab will build that for you.

    At least, he will if you're willing to prioritise monocoque over through-neck, because you kinda have to pick one or the other :)
