EJJS Posted October 4, 2020 Report Share Posted October 4, 2020 Hi! So, I've been thinking of building a electric bass and was wondering where to start. I pretty much have all the tools I need to build a bass. Here are the options I can think of: 4-string Jazz bass: + Easy + Can find templates easily - Kinda basic and meh 5-string Jazz bass: + Quite easy to build + 5 string is a plus -+ Templates kinda hard to find 5 or 6-string bass, neck thru: + good playability + good looks - Hard to build(?) - No templates -designing it is gonna be hard. - finding blanks long enough is hard where I live. Also if I do end up doing the neck thru, do I need to do laminate neck or will 1-piece maple neck be enough? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
