  1. I am building a fully custom bass guitar and was wondering if my choice of wood will be sufficient. I have a neck made of maple, which shouldn't be too much of an issue, but I am low on money, and all I really have is some standard 2x6 boards. I am not sure what it is composed of, they are fairly heavy. I am making a through neck design, so the width is no issue, but would those boards be good enough for the body? I can buy better wood for it, but I really would rather not. Also, do I absolutely need a rounded fretboard, or could I have one that is flat and just sanded on the edges to round it into the neck?
  2. Hello- RDS here. I've been playing guitar and bass guitar for over 40 years. I do my own repairs (within my skill level) and mods . I've built 10+ electric guitars and basses from aftermarket parts - mostly Fender style. I have played professionally since 1977. I own mostly Fender bass guitars and several 6 string electrics. I have two friends that build guitars. One has built over 200 acoustic and electrics and another has his own line of electrics that he contracts bodies and parts for. They are busy guys and I pick their brains as much as I can . So I'm here checking things out to increase my knowledge. Have a great day........
