    Gonna start building another bass soon, and I'm looking for some places that sell bookmatched facings, any ideas?

    I've gotten a few of my tops off of eBay. I will either search for the particular woods or 'Luthier Set' and some good results are returned.

    Are you looking for ones already glued?

    no, just cut already to book match, I can do all the gluing myself, I just don't have a saw set up to cut blocks into bookmatch
