When are you going to get tops like this available for bass?

Where did you find that image?

I dont see why that top couldnt be used for bass, did you call/email Warmoth and ask about it?

You can find it here: http://www.warmoth.com/guitar/bodies/unique_choice_bodies.cfm
I've asked about this before, and someone said that these flame maple/walnut/quilt maple tops are made for guitar, and are too short for use on a bass (G4 in my case). There are none available on the bass pages.
Odd, btw, that it's not listed as an option for basses other than P and J basses yet.

You can always laminate your own , there are a number of good resources for good wood ( curlykoa, luthiers mercantile etc)  the pieces are thicker , which allows for more sculpting of the body too.

I seriously considered that wood for my WGD, but at $220 I thought it was a little spendy for 1/8" of wood.  I could probably make 10 of those for that amount of money.  There is someone out there with enough disposable income to shell it out or they wouldn't have made it.  Watch and see after the holidays I bet somebody snatches it up......

They had a similar top on a Dinky J in the showcase a while back.
