    I can kinda see that. It's really hard for me to say that I like #1 the best with that one sitting next to it. I mainly like the first one because it's a bit of an oddity while not looking horribly wrong.

    #2 has a quasi-Schecter Stiletto thing going, which I like a lot.

    Yeah, I say #2.
     
  5. Number two, I like the "butt" on the bass side thing.

  8. I say #1 just because it looks different.

    They're all actually on the smaller scale of things when it comes to electric basses. All are 6-6 1/2" wide at the smallest, 11 1/2-12" wide at the largest, and about 20" in length. I like my basses nice and small :). The necks on the other hand will be pretty thick.

    I like the first one without the bass side cutout thing.

    #3, but without the extra "tooth" on the upper horn. Maybe with a upper horn kind of like # 1. #2 reminds me a little bit of a Ritter SEAL. I like them all.

    Sweet designs.

    I'ma have to go with no. 3, despite the fact that I really like the upper horn on 1 (and the side cutout is pretty damn cool, too). Number 2 has a bit too much ghetto booty for my tastes.

    They're all too narrow for my tastes.. Then again, the one I'm building is going to be one fat (b)ass :p

    Well, I've just finished butchering the 3 designs, mixing and matching the horns in Paint. Here's what I've come up with.

    1 and 2 on 3

    1 on 2 - Very odd, but worth showing

    2 on 3

    3 with no extra point

    1 without cutout - I still like the cutout

    I'm constantly lugging my basses around from friend's house to friend's house, so small is good. I've played a few smaller basses that I really liked, so I decided to go with that in these designs.

    It seems that you are pretty set on that combination :p.
