    Hey guys,

    I'm wanting to build my own bass,
    1. Just to say I have
    2. To try to build a good bass.

    Does any know where I can order wood?
    Does anyone have any experience building basses?
    Des anyone having a link to instructions?

    Have you tried the TB luthier forum? That'd be a better starting point than the bass thread
  3. Looks like Webtroll beat me to it, but the best advice I can give is to go check out all of the stickies over on the Luthier's Corner section of TalkBass. It's been a great resource for me throughout my learning process. Once you've gone through the How-To sections and such, go through some current and previous builds and you will learn a ton in a very short amount of time from some very talented guys. In case you're new to navigating the site, here's a link:
