A request, your top 5 bass builds here on TB
I've been looking at the LC pages here for the last few months and slowly collecting information and ideas for my first bass build. There's a lot of it here, and its sometimes its hard to wade through it all and find "the best" information. The FAQ and stickies sections, though it has some great stuff, has quite a few broken links now and isn't all that comprehensive. I hate to say it, but I didn't find it all that helpful, but maybe that's because I already have a bit of woodworking knowledge and much of the stickies are dedicated to that.
The threads I find most helpful are the ones that go step by step through a build, showing the conception and process of creation in detail. This thread is a perfect example:
I know that quite a few of you have been here for some time and I often see a post talking about "so and so's build threads are so good, etc.."
Not that I'm trying to be lazy, but wisdom is also learning from the experience of others :) and I really want to do my homework before starting a build this year. So, this a request for your "best build" threads. By "best", I don't necessarily mean your favorite bass, but instead would like to see threads that folks think represent a highly detailed, comprehensive, and informative example of a build from start to finish. (and "top 5" is just a suggestion ;) )
my still-in-progress pick for a candidate would be this one; http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/pa...l#post13682336
I like of course Andy's Build http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/an...derway-939907/
And I am enjoying watching JC's bass get finished... http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/jc...le-cut-937888/
Storm King I
Big_B's 5-string fretless mad scientist build
+1 ON Big_B's fretless! WOW.... So cool!!!!!
This is one of my favorite builds. Oscars work is second to none, probably the most impressive builder on TB.
Also anything from JohnK_10 will be top notch work, as well as BigB and Musiclogic. There are many I am leaving out, but its to hard to keep up with all of them.
