although I don't own an attitude coz of finance problems it has remained my fav bass of all time. Hope to get 1 soon.
Hope it's not too personal a question but how much did this set you back?
I'd love an attitude standard or LTD II to mod, but looking more and more like I'm going to be going down the build route. As i'm thinking of building an HPH or an HPJ for some extra gurgle and bite, but every time I play P/J basses I miss the extra deep low end
Adam Castle I don't remember honestly- it was so long ago. But depending on how much you are looking to spend you're best bet might be to get a good MIM Fender or good Squire bass and upgrade it with routing and new pickups. You can get the pickups for under $100 each easily. And a good guitar shop will route the body, cut the pickguard, add whatever controls and outputs you need for probably only 2hours of bench work. Scour Craig's list, eBay, etc. for parts. Bodies necks pickups and all. But this page is also a great community for help. Post the question to the group and you will get tremendous help.
Thanks Jay! Kind of planning things out at the moment
A friend of mine is a fantastic bass builder so I'm going to ask him what and how much he could do, and if the price isn't too much higher may just go full custom which would give me little perks like custom sculpting and neck profile, 21/24 frets. Going to see what's out there second hand parts wise ;)
