Books on building a bass?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by B8ssMan89, Sep 23, 2004.


  1. Hey, are there any books on how to build a bass?
    Cause I want to build one myself in summer of 2005.
    I know it will be a long difficult job, but I still want to do it.
    So, any info would be very much appreciated.

    There's a book called Make Your Own Electric Guitar by Melvyn Hiscock. That's generally regarded as one of the best books on the subject.
