Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Basically im looking for plans on how to build a bass from scratch. I need to know what tools how thick like a two piece body should be and what liquids glues and polishes to use.

    You can get measurements from basses you have or like (bring a tape measure with you to the store). Advice on tools and materials can be found in Melvyn Hiscock's "Make your own electric guitar". He builds several different designs, including a neck-thru 8 string bass.
