i am in class with an extremly talented woodworker, and was flirting with the idea of making a bass. i would get the carvin 6 string neck thru neck. the electronics would be left to my stepbrother. i have calculated this out to be around 550, and also flirted with the idea of why not just go for the full monty and do a six fretted six fretless doubleneck. what do you guys think?
