    Same... one bass I always wished I had seen the ad on talkbass for before it sold to someone else was an older, maybe 07 i think, custom shop medium scale purpleheart top/mahogany back thumb bass 4 string but with the 5 string pickup config. I still really want it. Maybe one day it will turn up again online :) That was the bass that planted the custom short scale thumb idea in my head but I wanted to go more traditional woods with the wenge/bubinga for my first CS :)

    I had in mind building a short/ medium 5 strings CS. My son has shortie corvette, I'm loving it! It actually sounds better than bigger brothers.
    How are yours?

    Flo, are there 32" scale Streamers? (or other neck thru basses)

    I remember Warwick CS only offered 32" scale for bolt-on models, but maybe things have changed... it'd be cool!

    But Why????
    I hate HP necks, they get all sticky and feel awful to play. The one HP neck I bought (set neck Korean spector) I sanded down to the satin sealer, and will probably finish it down to wood with tung oil eventually.

    I like both... love the feel of satin maple neck and even though it's true HP necks are easier to feel sticky... I don't know if it's the finish on Warwick necks that are just awesome: my SSII just feels very comfy to play

    My Star Bass II PS had a high polish neck. A must have there because it´s sunburst like the whole bass. But I needed to have a piece of cloth somewhere near to clean it regularly.

    You're brave, Nacho! I guess I'd never sand down a HP Warwick neck (not from a bass that comes from the CS, I mean). I just couldn't:eek:

    I'd rather have a neckthru HP than a BO, tho (doesn't it seem it could be a little chunkier than a neckthru?)

    I think it is genetic, my brother did it to the neck of his brand new, silverburst, Gibson Les Paul Custom Axess, only 7 days after buying it, when he new it was his dream guitar.

    He also posted pics in some Gibson web forum just for the fun of freaking out all the rest of the forumers. ;)

    We all have that kind of dark sense of humour in the family. :)
