Hello, Over a period of about a year i have been saving $$ to either put a down payment on nice used car or get myself a custom bass. I have accumulated a little over $5500. I have a modulus quantum 5 string that works ok for the things that i have been doing(jazz trio, funk, and solo pieces). But lately i have been getting into primus. With Claypools fretless work as my favorite. So i understand a carl thompson is out of my reach. So i looked at all of his students basses. D. huff, eshenbaugh, and M. Browne. While all are talented luthiers, i havnt found any of there basses that i liked as much as the ct's(with the rainbow bass and $10 million dollar bass in particular). So this is what i would be looking for. 6 string fretless bass 35'' scale ebony top w/ coco bolo center stripe mahogony body(hollowbody) 3 piece canary wood and mineral stained poplar back 3 piece maple neck ebony fingerboard w/maple and purpleheart markers single pickup in wood cover peizo wood bridge active electronics Who can do this for that price or should i just get the car. I understand i am young but have worked for all of the money myself and my parents dont give me anything. Even if i get a car i pay for it all. So i figure this will be my last chance to upgrade my bass before i go to college which i also have to help pay for.
