    It's been a LOOOOOOONG time since I last owned a bass. The Beatles were a new sensation when I had my Silvertone bass & amp. So needless to say, I have a lot of catching up to do.

    It's going to be a 4-string. Neck will be curly maple. Fretboard will be ebony. Those things are for sure. Still not sure if the body will be maple or bubinga. Music will range from rock to jazz.

    I'm going to make a bass based on the P-bass. I'm a woodworker and I just finished my first guitar, so I can handle that part. What I am clueless about is pickups, strings, fretwire size and tuners.

    Could you help?

    There are different sub forums here for each of those items, including a Luthier forum.
