A week or so ago i was inspired to try and build a bass body from scrath, and use electronics,hardwear, and a neck from different places. I found myself a sweet looking Silvertone neck on ebay (25 bucks) and an old fender p-bass with a broken truss rod($65). The electronics on the fender worked fine but the action was like WHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! SO that neck is not part of the project but the silvertone is.The body shape i have planed is basically a Flying V with an SG tophalf (pictures are in attachments). I need to cut the pickguard from the p-bass just a little along the top near the neck but i might end up shaping it a little different idk yet. I wanna do a sunburst finish because i like the look of natural but i dont want to go all natural.i dont have the wood yet for the body the pictures are just of a template. Any tips you guys have would be awsome. Thanks. PS: My dad thinks the body is too big, i dont.
