So I've got a terrible itch for a 5 string P-bass after buying a 4 string, I had intended to order up a neck and body through Warmoth but I noticed they only had the option for a rear routed body, after emailing them and pressing them for a reason its apparently because a top rout would cause neck dive(??!!) on a five string because of it's chunkier body compared to a four string(???!!!).
So clearly they're talking bollocks there right, what are my options here? Ideally I'd like to get it painted in the same place as there aren't any places near me that will paint guitars, so, who makes normal 5 string precision bass bodies and maybe necks too?
This with 5 strings is what I'm aiming for:
