    It isn't any harder to build a EUB then it is a bass guitar, but they are different animals. Also there isn't a set standard design, but there are three main themes: the baby bass, the small body and the stick. EUBs are upright basses though so you should really look at a double bass or two and base the neck fingerboard [at least] on a DB's so it can be played properly.

    Bob "ALL HAIL" Gollihur's site has links to EVERYTHING Upright upright http://www.urbbob.com/basslink.html#eurb

    Also The talkbass EUB forum http://www.talkbass.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=101 is great too.

    And here is a thread with some of my building picts and info on one of my EUBs [I've made two] http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=130475
