Good starter router bits..

  1. Greetings friends,

    I was blessed over Christmas with a new VS router and a few router bits. I was gifted a 3/8 Freud roundover, a 1/2 Freud roundover, and an Amana flush trim/template bit. I wondered if there are any others that may be necessary to pick up to get started. My first project will be a rebuild on an SX bass that Ive stripped and now want to put a nice top and a new neck on. Im switching from a 4 string to a 5 string so Ill need to clean the neck pocket as well as pickup/preamp cavities.

    Also is there a nice bit I can use to hog the neck down before I get to hand carving?

    Thanks all

    You'll eventually need straight bits to rout for truss rod, stiffening rods, etc. 1/4" is pretty common...
