I've been thinking, eventually i want to make my own bass from scratch. Now I know this isn't easy and i will take my time and stuff but I won't be starting for a while. Anyway I was wondering is there a way to create a V shaped bass and not get nick dive? I would love to have a V shaped bass all the ones on the market have neck dive. Now if it's impossible I would like to know before I start. If you guys have any ideas how I would do this it would be much appreciated.

By the way, it will be a 5 string bass, 35" scale length if that matters at all.

Goona be hard to do. Most basses will have the extra long upper horn to shift the balance point for the long neck. W a V guitar the balance point is gonna be at the very base of the neck. Not really any way to shift it a V guitar doesnt have the best balance and has much less neck and tuner weight hanging out so far.

add a bunch of weight to the body. use a light neck wood. ,ake it headless with those huge tuner bridges. probably a bunch of stuff you don't want to do. but those are your oprions
no sir away a papaya war is on

Try making a bass body of pure wenge, heavy as hell but helps with the dive.
Perhaps put a lead block in the lower horn? XD Granted it sounds silly but it would act as a natural counterbalance to the neck weight due to the physics of a V's weight distribution.
I don't need a signature to tell you I don't need a signature!

I say go headless

Also, make the body out of a heavier wood.

I'd rather not go headless and also what kind of wood could I use on the body that is heavy but not so heavy that I won't be able to play it for any extended period of time.
