    Hi all,
    Just got the book "so you want to make a double bass" by Peter Chandler. It cost me 60 bucks plus shipping. It is brand new and is a comphrehensive tutorial-it is just not answering the questions I have in mind. I'll sell it for fifty plus shipping. View it here-

    OK, Jeff, now I'm curious, since I have the Chandler book, too. What are the questions that you would like to see answered in a book like this? This book was awfully pricey; at that rate, Peter Chandler should come over and bend the ribs for you. (When the book arrived, my wife said "where's the rest of it?") It seems a little light on the issue of finishing, but that's probably a larger issue that needs its own book. If you ever decide to write a book, I'll be the first in line to order one. Hoping that Arnold S. does one too.
