Not sure if this should be posted here or in the builders forum. But I think posting it here will give a more general feedback. So here we go: I was talking to a friend of mine about the pros and cons about original designed instruments. As a builder, I like to build my own designs. Sometimes its inspired by a standard design like a Tele, Strat or LP. But I really enjoy building something completely new. Thats when my friend mentioned that that was normal since I was a bass player. Bass players tend to go for the original designs, where guitarist tend to go for standard designs. The more I thought about it, the more it seems like he is correct. So here is the question. Do you like original designs or standard designs the best + are you mainly a guitarist or a bass player?
