hey all, this is my first new thread so i guess i should start by saying hello. hello! i've wanted to learn the craft probably since i got my first electric bass some years ago, a Peavey T-40. i held that stringed boat anchor in my skinny little arms and thought "there's gotta be a better way". i use and admire instruments from Zon and others who aren't afraid to use technology and other "experimental" methods and materials. that's not to say i don't also appreciate the beauty of a wood bass from the likes of Rob Allen etc. aaanyway the flame has been sparked again after all this time and i'm eager to get going, but not in a rush, i know it takes time. lots of time, step by step. so right now for me step one is LEARN. but where to start? i see books here and there but most are geared towards guitars, acoustics mainly. is there a single book on the planet that focuses on electric bass building? even an online tutorial. i'll take anything i can get. so please bombard me with links to what you guys consider "essential reading". tools, wood, whatever. thanks so much for any help.
