Hey there! It's been a while since I finished this, but I think I'm gonna do some posts about it, in case someone can find it useful. SO, I love Telecasters. Telecaster Guitars, not basses. And right now I think there's a Fender or a squier bass with that shape, but not when I decided to go for it. And I love humbuckers, and the look of the Cabronitas. It was a matter of time that I decided to make one Cabronita bass in guitar style... Specs (pretty standard actually) Alder Body 1 piece Maple neck 20 Frets Bone nut Zebrawood skunk stripe (that was a leftover from other project) NO inlays 1 Humbucker pickup Pearloid pickguard 2 saddle "vintage" bridge Volume, Tone By that time I thought I wanted to try to be lucky and make the instrument to be sold, so the colours were gonna be black and vintage ambar for the neck. As most of the instruments I was seeing at the moment. So, this is what I got to start with: 2 piece alder body blank Birdseye maple blank, big enough to accomodate 2 necks in it Gretsch humbucker 2 saddle bridge And some CTS pots, orange drop cap and "regular fender size" chinese tuners (to measure, and be able to replace them for "proper" ones if the bass was good enough) I had a Guitar telecaster template, but found that it was really small for a bass (34" bass looked like a lollypop) so I hand drawn the shape mixing a P-bass and a Telecaster, and made a template Once I was happy with the result (in the neck template I had marks for the nut, 12th fret and the place where the neck meets the body, 16th fret in Pbasses as far as I know) I marked it in the alder I really liked that "eye" and wanted to make sure it was in a place that could be seen, so decided that was the front. And this is the classic "I think this might become a proper instrument" pic I think this is it for today Cheers!
