    I'm making my own bass and theres one thing I don't know. How dry should the wood be before I do anything to it? It's a great two-tone peice of walnut (I think, i got it out of my backyard), I'll post a pic if it ever gets done. Thanks to any responce. I dont no if i get notified when theres a responce, but if you could email me at Thanks again.
  2. The wood used in bass construction has all been "seasoned" -that is, it's cut then put up in storage for a minimum of 1 year before it is cut into board dimensions. This helps minimize cracking and checking. Most wood for instruments is between 8 and 11% moisture (I think).
