Hi all I have been a lurker here for a long time, and have wanted to build a bass from scratch for a a number of years. I have built a kitset ukulele and guitar with my son over the last few years, which were fantastic father/son projects. But being inspired by bass builds I have followed here, I have finally started on a bass for myself. I have been working on it for a while, and so will share images I have taken to get up to date, but it has been evolving as the build progresses, so have really only got recently got clarity about what it is going to be. The aim is to use only New Zealand native woods, and if possible using recycled pieces I can find around (my Dad is a bit of a hoarder of wood, so I have some good choices). Hope you find it interesting - the woods should be quite different to ones I have seen here. Still a few decisions to make, so may be asking for some opinions along the way.
