Im thinking about building a electric double bass and wondered if any one can give me any tips.
There are links to EUB building info at Bob Gollihur's massive bass website, and general lutherie info at the Musical Instrument Maker's Forum.
My experience is shown at www.eclecticbass.com/eurb.html although I need to update it. It now has a K&K Big Twin under the short bridge and a Moses magnetic pickup.
I'd check out a bunch of the EUB makers' sites from my Double Bass Links Page - http://www.urbbob.com/basslink.html for inspiration and ideas. If you don't have a double bass, I'd get access to one for measurements and study. Following that, a full-scale drawing is probably the best way to go, before you start making sawdust.
