I have been playing bass for two years now (not a lot of time but we all have to start somewhere). After about six months of playing I decided that I wanted to build my own bass. I have been questing after info. on how to do it, what woods do what (as far as tones etc.), what tools I would need, where I can get the wood, glue, hardware, pick-ups etc. I was informed by Mr. Jimmy Coppolo from www.guitarboutique.com that the best way to get this info is to work with a builder. This is sound advice. One problem, there isn't a builder anywhere near me. I asked about books and other possible sources of information. He said that few exist, and those that do are of poor quality. Along with being a fledgling bass player, I am also a writer. I am asking all of the fine folks here at talkbass.com, is there a market for a book that goes step by step through the production of building an electric bass?
