Well, Ill be coming up on my 5 years playing mark in august, and I want to commemorate it by building my first bass. Now, I want to build this bass, not just assemble a parts bass. It needs to be mildly cheap, but not cheaply done. Right now I am honestly no farther than the planning stages. Im going for a Jazz bass like bass, maybe a direct variation of the Jazz bass body. I was also thinking of making a Jazz bass body, but making it a single cut and messing with the lines a bit. All help is appreciated! Ill keep this thread updated with ideas, woods, plans, etc. Hopefully Mike (mikeyswood) will help me out! Maybe Ill make some overnight runs to Cinci! Thanks!
