A Couple Of Things.

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on building a bass in a sort of yamaha rbx 170 style

I was thinking of buying some wood from perry and need to know a few things.

Which do you think will be better for a bass body

African Mahogany, Brazilian Mahogany or Blackwood, Don't really want wamp Ash and don't like the sound of alder, my current pbass is made of it.

Is there any benefits of two piece woods that have been joined or a single piece. What does 'machined' mean and for a carved top is lacewood a good looking wood that can be easily finished?

Also nobody has made a definitive guide on installing a truss rod, how is it joined onto the neck, at what points, and is it preferable to have a access point at the headstock or the heel?
