Hey guys, I tried doing a search but came up empty handed so I figured I'd start a new thread. Has anyone seriously considered the possibility of making their own upright bass. I'm not talking a crappy card board one like I keep seeing when I search (Drives me nuts), but a real, wood, quality upright bass. I'm not trying to say what luthiers do can be done by the average person, but what about someone who's a carpenter and works with wood everyday? Sure there will be some learning and things are done different and you need certain shape, depth, etc for good acoustics, but why couldn't someone build their own upright bass? Is this even feasible? Should I just suck it up and spend the 3k on bass? I can get the wood for decently cheap. I realize this will be a lot of work, and a lot of man hours. I think it could be a fun, although lengthy, project. Has anyone does this or am I just completely insane?
