Hi there, going to start my first build after weeks of reading, drawing and thinking about building my own bass! Very excited about this! I have some wood working experience, but not much (I built RC planes in the past and always liked working with wood) and I am a musician for about 20 years (saxophone / guitar / bass).. Some specs I have in mind: - Mahogany body with nice top & laminated center (ash / sucupira e.g.).. semi-hollow /w tone holes, maybe with a transparent red finish - Indian rosewood fingerboard /w 24 frets, no inlays and almost flat (40" radius or something like that) - Wengé neck (or maple... not sure) - 4 Strings - Ultra Jazz pickups from DiMarzio / passive / only 2 volume controls - All golden hardware (Gotoh bridge and tuners) And a photo of the design, paper template and plywood (for the template): Still working on the headstock design.. I'll keep you posted!
