My experience with V-shaped basses is that it is VERY difficult to make one that balances well. The V-shape was designed for guitar, and on a guitar, you can see that the strings nearly reach the end of the effective body length (not counting the "legs" of the V-guitar). Bear in mind that bass strings tend to extend further on a standard body shape than guitar strings, due to the longer string length (34" as opposed to 25.5").
This means that, in order to make a V-shaped bass, you will either have to:
A) Make a really long neck that negatively-impacts playability and balance, or
B) Make the bass a short (30") scale that can negatively-impact responsiveness.
all good points
Gibson made 375 of these in 1981, a Bro of mine has a sunburst one that I got to play for a few minutes a couple of years ago. Neck dive is an issue but I'd live with it if I could get one to keep, lol.
