Hello u bass lovers! I have some questions regarding u basses, as I'm planning to build one from scratch. I'm friends with a classical guitar luthier, and I want to make a u bass in the classical guitar style.
Could someone tell me what the string spacing is at the bridge please?
Also, how does the hatch cover on the back attach? Could someone take some photos of the inside of the bass so I can get an idea of bracing etc?
Do you think this pickup will work? http://www.thomann.de/gb/shadow_sh064.htm
Is there anywhere I can buy the tuners? I think hipshot said before that they could sell me some when I start building?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Some photos of inside the bass would be awesome! I'll be sure to share my progress with you.
PS this is also posted in the U-bass megathread but I could use some answers a bit quicker so posted here as well. Thanks
