Making 4 String Wenge Through Bass Neck Instructions?

Recommended Posts

Get Melvyn Hiscock's 'Make Your Own Electric Guitar' (that's a book), has a ton of general building information, as well as details on building a neck-through bass which should help a lot.

That book is an essential tool for beginners, IMO. Priceless.

Other than that, isn't there a pinned neck-through bass tutorial/in-progress thread somewhere here? The wood used isn't really germane to basic contruction methods.

Cool thanks im only getting wood in july because im going on holiday to south africa.

But i will definatly get that book.

Any one got any ideas on design because im not shore at all yet what i want?

Get the book; for me, the heart of the thing is the chapter on design, taking you through it all step by step. Ultimately, it's your guitar. Build what you want to build.

The book has three different instruments in it: a set-neck guitar, a bolt-on guitar, and a neck-through 8-string bass. The construction principles for a guitar and a bass, however, are essentially the same, the only real differences being the scale length and dimensions.
