‘Can you make a BeBop 5 with 17mm stringspacing?’
No problem. Or.. wait a minute. That means I need to design a narrow neck. And have a custom bridge made. And custom pickups with the poles at the right spot under the strings. And then my tuner-layout changes, so I need to change the headstock. And the neckpocket in the body must fit the narrow neck, so the inner curves of the horns of the body need to change too. And then the pickguard needs to change too…
‘And can you make the body a little smaller?’
…why not, that was the only thing left that I didn’t have to change yet. Anything else?
‘Yes, a 3-piece neck like my Elevation, blackwood fingerboard, Aero pickups, closed covers, black hardware and a ramp between the pickups.’
