    here's a lil image of a bass i want to build

    i could definitely use some critiquing. any suggestions, pros/cons, etc?

    the neck is probably out of proprtion. as are the pickups, etc. its just a sketch though. i'll b sure to do a full size template, as well as a drawing on autodesk inventor.

    pretty cool, reminds me of a mixture of some different basses
    (zeta, tune, and little zon)

    pretty sweet.

    oh, and draw on graph paper, make each sqare 2 inches.

    thanks. yea, thats the next step. graph paper with proportions.

    then, a instead of full size, i can use autocadd and the plotter at school to print out a full size full spec template to make a pine template from.
  4. yeah... whenever i use graph paper now they all look wrong...

    I hope you have a better time than I am... lol
  5. Maybe that could help some of you on your graph paper's actually pretty nice and also, easier then buying a pack of paper!
  6. The neck pocket looks to be dangerously small, is there enough wood there to fix it all? Is it a bolt on?

    Nice shape tho :)

    don't worry much about the neck pocket. i basically just drew two lines and drew a body around it. the next template/scale drawings will be a lot better. its more of a critique of the shape i'm looking for. i'm glad you like it :)

    Kind of a Vigier vibe to it. Pretty cool!
