Maybe look into a short scale bass? They're super fun. I sold my full scale four string and wound up replacing it with a short scale, it's a lot of fun but I miss the P Bass I won't lie.

Yup, that's normal. Drives me nuts too, but the raygun floyd sound makes me not miss the double bends so much. More springs might help a bit.

Maybe try a vinyl dye. It will actually change to color of the binding, and it's meant to do so. I don't know what it will do to the wood, so I'd tape it off very neatly and do lots of research. I...

He played an old Washburn for at least a few shows, one of the few famous Washburn players. I forget the model name, but I think it looks cool. I think his Les Paul is ox blood or natural color.
