Im thinking about building a bass and wondered if the body being 1" thick will affect it negatively in any way. I have never heard of such thin basses or guitars (no one measures? Thinnest I can think of is Ibanez SR300) and Summer is coming up and I wont spend a year farting around the house doing nothing. Is it doomed before it even starts, or is it crazy enough that it just might work? Or am I just behind the times?
