Guitar Build Versus Bass...


Recommended Posts

I've graduated from a Saga kit to a Stew-Mac and then a Warmoth parts-o-caster.

Now I'm considering a bass. Any big potholes to avoid?


The answers are cracking me up... :D

Here's a serious one. Just plan everything out full-size on paper. Base it all around your bridge. Buy Melvyn Hiscock's book. It's very helpful.

In my experience, the construction is the same... the differences are the obvious things. (Dimensions, 4 strings.)

I second Geo's advice. Melvyn Hiscock's book is great, and drawing everything out accurately and full size is very sensible.
