    Hi!

    I'm considering diving into the blasphemous abyss of building an Alembic style bass, and I was hoping any of you could just give me some quick measurements of the body?
    Most importantly the width at the widest point so that I know if my blank is wide enough.

    Oh, and it's gonna be 34", not sure if they are all the same size regardless.
    This is the body style I'm after:

    Many thanks :)

    Use graph paper and a "sized"
    photo of the bass style you want. If your scale is to be 34" the rest is just ratios and squares on the graph paper. Most Kinko or Fed ex style copy shops will even blow it up and give you a full sized print out fairly cheap
