That really comes down to the question of how custom do you want the bass? For instance you could have the minimal and go with no electronics just run the pick up tot he jack or 1 volume, 1 tone or 1 volume, 2 tones etc. It all depends on how many pickups you will be putting in the bass and then you can decide from there.

Going of that tutorial you will want to get

1 volume pot 250k/500k

1 tone pot 250k/500k

1 selector switch -- again this depends on what combinations you want but usauly a 3 way or a 5 way is used

2 humbuckers -- what ever pickups suit the sound your after

1 output jack

And then the obvious little bits - Wire, solder

Check out http://www.axesrus.com/axeknobs.htm if your in the UK they have all the parts you need plus more.

Im a little confused what is t your building a bass or a guitar? In your 1st post you say bass but in the tutorial its a guitar??
