    About the best source of information I've found is right here on this forum. If you read up on the past posts and do searches when you have a problem almost any question can be answered. Of course, if you can't find a solution, you can always ask. These cats really seem to know what they're doing.

    Another decent resource is www.projectguitar.com. They have plenty of tutorials about guitar building that can generally be applied to basses as well.
