Hey there everyone,
I am working up the courage and experience to build my own bass down the road.
I decided to start off by tearing apart and re-building an old Epiphone Les Paul Special II that my friend gave to me. I will have some questions a little down the road, (if its worth repairing a slightly damaged neck and most likely some help with wiring) but here are my plans.
I want to delete the neck pick-up and replace the bridge with an EMG ALX HZ pick-up and switch. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/acces...bucker-abq-set
I need to get my hands on a piece of mahogany so I can shape it to fill in where the neck pick up used to sit. Anywhere else out here where I have found some aren't quite dry enough and not really suitable for what I want to do.
If anyone is/was building a bass out of mahogany and wants to ship a chunk to the great white north, it would be greatly appreciated. I would safely say a piece 6 inches wide by 10 inches to a foot long at least. I know I'll be doing it twice, as I normally screw up and then learn from my mistakes.
Message me and I can pay for the shipment via Paypal.
