    Building my first bolt on neck for a project and need a little direction. More with the frets and fretboard than anything else. I have plenty of experience in the wood shop and I've repaired a few basses so I feel like I've got a good handle on the basics.

    Just looking for the best step by step visual guide to building a bass neck to keep mistakes to a minimum.

    There's a youtube channel by an Australian fellow named Fletch. Fletcher Handcrafted Guitars or something of the like. He has a couple of really good neck building videos.
