So I was in math class, and instead of actually doing my work, I decided to draw up a body design for a bass. I've always wanted to be a luthier and maybe make custom basses, but I figure I'd need a special kind of design to make it stand out. Most of the ones I drew ended up looked like a P-bass or a Spector. But then I thought about what kind of designs I like and what appeals to me. I ended up with a kind of Telecaster/Rickenbacker mix. That's like a rough sketch. Keep in mind, I'm not a very good drawer. But I think it gives you the basic idea. And the head is a design I'm thinking about, but I might change it. Basically I was looking at like a humbucker (I figured I might wind them myself), although it might be a custom kind of thing. I wanna get a hot tone out of it. As for the knobs, there's the obvious volume and tone, but I havn't decided what the third would be (I just sorta put it there). So that's about it. Any other questions, or any ways to improve my design, I'm open for them. But I wanna try building a prototype this weekend, or at least over the summer. I wanted to get a single thing of wood (I don't care what kind of wood), but I might end up having to glue two pieces together, which I didn't really wanna do. Then again, it'd be the prototype... P.S. Forgive the quality. I drew it on paper, then took a picture with a digital camera. I don't have a scanner. And the lighting in my house sucks really badly. I think my bedroom might be a better place for a picture (other than my bathroom), but really everywhere else is poor lighting.
