    I think it would be a cool topic... :)


    I thought of a custom shop Infinity, got on a photo editing program... put the woods and made everything out to get what I was looking for and then it says it has to shut down :evil: so now I can't share the picture with you all...

    I'm not even sure if some of this is possible in the shop but what the heck. :p


    6 String Infinity NT
    Hollowed out Ovangkol body, Tigerwood top, Yellowheart middle (f-holes)
    3 layer Ovangkol 2 layers Wenge neck
    Wenge Fingerboard
    Name Inlay
    Natural Stain High Polish Finish
    Active MEC J/TJ pickups
    Active MEC 3-band electronics

    :D

    yup, all strewn together from bits and pieces from varioous custom shop basses...

    From what I understand, the only truly impossible one at this stage is the 6-string $$, since the 6-string open-pole humbuckers are not available through the warwick custom shop, but from what I've heard, they might be in the not so-distant future...

    the 10 and 5-with-buzzard headstock are the most realistic (although not cheap...)

    Sounds good! Would you have E as the lowest string or do you just need to detune that string?

    I would keep a B string. I find that open D is much easier for alot of music than using the D on the B string, for stuff like Tool, RATM and other stuff, even som RHCP. The D-Tuner wouldnt be used alot, but it would be worth it.
