^ no, make one yourself! It's a lot easier than you think, and you don't have to conform to anyone's specs and standards but your own!

Considering this is the Gear Building and Customizing forum, there's probably a way for you to get some hints on how to build the body.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

at the very least buy a explorer body that is completely unrouted, so basically its just the shape.

then do everything else yourself.
