The wonderful folks over at the Musical Instrument Makers Forum www.mimf.com are taking registration for their latest, on-line, building course taught by Bill Moll. I've seen the results of this course in pics that the students have posted and the work generated has been absolutely top-notch. If any of you are serious about rollin' yer own, I would recommend getting into it. The MIMF uses this as one of it's sole methods of financial support since they don't do any advertising over there. To date there have been dozens of basses built in these courses but you never can tell when the enrollment is full so get in early. And check in over there for some in-depth discussion of instrument building, not just basses but guitars, percussion, horns, just about everything!
