    G.A.S. List:
    I want to make my own bass next. I have the bug bad and need to do it! I am hoping to build a 5-string, fretted, prettyprettypretty bass. Possibly with flamed maple top or similar... suggestions and advice welcome!

    Update: Built two basses from scratch - one fretless fiver and one fretted, top-swappable fiver. So consider the itch scratched. Now it's a full on obsession.

    I'd also like to get a good old Fender Jazz Bass (USA).
