Bass making books? [DB forum thread]
Can anyone recommend me a book on bass making? I intend to order at least one set of plans, but I'd like to get a book with it as well. I've got two years of school before I can look into taking an apprenticeship, so I'd like something to study and do before then. I'm friends with a luthier who's offered to email me progress shots of his basses, and I'd like to study as much as I can over the next few years.
I've looked at 'so, you want to make a double bass' and 'to make a double bass'. Is one better than the other? Any other books I should be reading?
Thanks in advance,
