So I thought it would be cool if I got one these:
http://www.amazon.com/THRU-LUCITE-ACRYLIC-ELECTRIC-GUITAR/dp/B0020MCR9I/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments&qid=1254967611&sr=1-3

Then modded the crap out of it. First thing to go would be the pickups and electronics. I'd make my own pickups, and replace the tone pot with a no load tone pot.

Next, I'd get these guys to install an aluminum neck on it.

Eventually, I might install a Kahler on it.

Of course, I'd be spending $600-700 on a $220 bass, but the end result would be pretty cool. And this is completely hypothetical. I'll probably never get around to doing it.

I always liked the Dillion Crystal series, but they were way more than 220...somewhere close to 600 when I was looking at them...a cool candidate for LED's to light up the body in the color of your choice...

Galveston guitars are cheap, so ya it would need some fixing up before it would play like you want it to but your not buying it to mod and sell right???

so if you do it, do it Smile

They look cool, but they're heavy as hell, might be a problem for you, might not.

^ Come on man, you're talking to the guy who thinks a bass made of solid aluminum would be a good idea.

Also, I use a 4" Levi strap with my Spector, so using it at gigs won't be a problem

Lead or gold?



If you haven't heard the song "Treasure Island" off of the album Pile Of Skulls, I recommend it. Essential rock tune. Rifftastic!

The Pile Of Skulls/Black Hand Inn/Masquerade era of Running Wild was especially good.
