My friend wants me to design a bass, not build but design, for him. He wants it to have elements from the Jazzmaster, Mustang, And telecasters guitars. He wants to have a P-bass style bridge Pup, and a Jazz style neck, and mustang/jag style selectors. Would this be doable, before I get to work on designs.

I don't know much about basses and all but this sounds like it'd look amazing. It doesn't sound like it would be impossible so I'd say go for it. Be sure to post pics of the design. I wanna see this.

definately doable bassed on shapes alone. a tele style cut for treble side and a jazzmaster cut for the bass side would look cool i think

Something similar to this, maybe? Except a bass, not guitar, obviously.



It has the Jazzmaster body, except it's a single cutaway design like a tele, and the lower horn is extruded a bit more like a mustang.

I was thinking of using the cut of a telefor the treble side, the wing of a JAzzmaster for the bass, and the bottem end of a 'Stang
