    I've been thinking for my fretless I'd like to get a bass kit... I don't have the nessesary tools and craftsmanship to build my own but I'd like to put my own artwork on the body/headstock... I've checked out the Carvin bass kits but I was wondering if there's any other places I could look for em?

    Thanks!

    Kits per se? I don't know.

    You can buy necks, bodies, all the hardware you'd need from someone like Warmoth. It will be more expensive than a Carvin, but you have more choices.

    If you wanna go cheap, there is a kit with a basswood body and paddle headstock for you to shape and is called "Saga" bass kits. They are all over the internet and are real cheap. If you wanted a fretless, get a rosewood board one and just simply pull the frets out and fill them. How hard is that?

    y'know, i saw a bass recently made from cheap parts (something custom parts something or other) and it was just that, cheap. go for quality.
