SamIAmUBUF Posted September 28, 2005 Report Share Posted September 28, 2005 I'm building a 6-string bass with a thru-body neck (thanks to erikbojerik for the neck blank) and I was hoping some experienced builders had some suggestions or comments. I haven't really finished planning everything out, but hese are the specs I'm considering thus far: Dimensions: 2 1/16" at the nut (Carvin 6-string bass nut) 3 1/4" at the 24th fret 34" scale 27 fret pau ferro fretboard 3 1/4" string spacing at the bridge 24" Hot Rod truss rod I'm considering ash body wings with a transparent purple finish and transparent finish on the thru-body neck (more-or-less to make the body frame the ebony/walnut/maple striped neck). I'll probably finish off with all gold hardware. Any suggestions, warnings, obvious mistakes? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
