    I have this ridiculous vision a bass with a one-string neck, a two-string neck and a three-string neck. Seriously. Is there anybody out there who could make such a bass for reasonable money? Other than Krappy Guitars and a certain guy whose last name starts with "W" and ends with "ishnevsky"?

    No, I don't really have a specific musical need for this.

    Depends, if you were to have a 3 string on a 4 string width neck (like tony levin) im sure you could find someone to do it. But making a smaller neck takes more effort.

    Yeah, I could just take two narrow 4-string necks and set one up with 2 strings (Mark Sandman style) and the other with three, that would be close but not quite there and not very elegant.

    Well, my doubleneck cost $600... I'm willing to spend at most twice that.

    Sound like you've got money to burn pklima. Though, I have to say a 3-string sounds pretty cool.

    Money to burn? I don't know, $400 per neck is not that much.

    Just a suggestion.. but I know the owner of Krappy guitars (I forget his first name) is a realy stand up kinda guy! He's on TB a lot.. Talk to him about him just making you the necks. Custom made to your specs. He seems like a really nice guy I don't think he would mind to make some one-off parts for you.

    Kevin. He just offered to make it for $175 plus shipping. I think we have a winner...
