new to forum , first bass build
HI guys ! been looking on the tb forum for a while and found great builds out here and info's , nice forum and people seems good , heres my first bass build , it got some mistakes i know but its the first and not the last
neck : 5 strings neck modded to 4 strings ,22 frets ,32 inch scale from Carvin usa
body: mahogany sides , maple center with red birch inserts
pickups and electronics :emg active 18 volts mod
strings: d'addario .50-.110
bridges: from ebay ...
finish : vinyl sealer and 90 degrees gloss lacquer , still unpolished
Ive always liked big string spacing ... its just for show but i do play every day and love it . this bass is going to be modded soon to 5 strings , passive pickups , maple neck with maple fingerboard and may be fretless ... not sure , im looking to build a walnut veneered bass (almost all the parts are in)
its quite a beaut, mate.
thanks , too bad that this one will be a solid color soon because 5 strings wont match much with the 2 stripes
Think of it as having 5 stripes if that bothers you ;-)
I think it looks perfect that way. Throw a clear pickguard and it'll be a beaut.
id five it and leave the finish alone. its beautiful
