    Hey all. I've been planning out a bass for a while now and I hope to start soon. I have limited woodworking experience but I am going to buy a premade neck and I have a luthier friend who is willing to help and let me use his shop.

    I've done a lot of reading about stuff, and I made a list of everything I need to buy. Could someone please check it over and make sure everything I need is there and it all fits?

    Body: Alder body blank from warmoth (or something purchased locally - looking for stores)
    Neck: Maple with purpleheart fretboard. deluxe 5 paddle from warmoth.
    Bridge: Schaller 496
    Tuners: Gotoh GB7
    Strap Pin: Standard pair, warmoth.
    Knobs: 3x flat top
    Jack: Electrosocket, standard, warmoth
    Pots: 3 x 500k
    Wire: Wiring Kit, warmoth
    Switch: on/on
    Shielding: 3/4" roll of tape
    Capacitor: 0.047 uF
    Neck Plate: Standard Fender
    Pickups: Nordstrand NP5 (neck), Nordstrand Dual Coil (bridge)

    Am I missing anything? Is anything horribly incompatible?

    Hopefully this will turn into a build thread reasonably soon.
