  1. Well i just started in construction class.. and I have talked to me teacher. I am soon to start making my first bass.
    I remember not too long ago, a kid on here made his own bass with his grandpa, and he was in the newspaper, and i remember his bass looking really nice and stuff. I was wanting to do like a 5 string, neck through (i think thats what it is called) bass.

  4. you should honestly quit playing bass, and start making more jokes like that last one. then you could be a full time comedian!
