Mustang bass template?
I'm going to be getting some old barn wood (cypress, I think) from my dad. I was looking to make a Mustang bass out of it, but I can't seem to find a template anywhere!
So...does anybody here have a link to one, or is someone maybe willing to make a tracing of their own Mustang bass for me? I suppose a Musicmaster or Bronco bass template would work just as well.
There are a bunch of templates here:
There's a Mustang guitar, and a Jaguar bass. Maybe one would work for you?
The Mustang bass body is identical in size to the guitar: you could superimpose the neck cutout and bridge position from any other fender bass on top of that, and then position the pickup yourself.
Thanks, guys. That's what I was thinking, that the guitar template might have to suffice. Weird that there isn't one specifically for the basses with that shape, though!
I am in the middle of building a mustang g**tar, and it really surprised me how tiny the body looked, although mine is about 1/4" bigger then the original.
I used a full scale strat copy neck an it looked too long for the body, so I set the neck a little deeper to the bridge which helped. I think that is the key why a guitar mustang body could be fine for bass, because the bridge on a bass is way back towards the end of the body.
If gladly would have send you my templates, but I live in Europe... Good Luck, mustangs are cool! :bassist:
