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. http://img81.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img81&image=DSCF0247.jpg something sorta like taht wood wise. what would i do for the fretboard? i'm probably making it fretless. if someone can link to me to a site where it shows like picture to picture instructions on how to make a bass sorta like that. thank you guys so much, everytime i run into a problem, it is answered fast and easy here.
