    Hey guys, heres the project I have in mind. I want a flying V bass, but the only ones I've seen are Epi's, so I want to build my own that will be basically a Fender Jazz Bass in every sense but the appearance. Since Warmoth will probably want $350 at least to cut one, I'd rather cut it myself. My question is, how do I do this using the available 14" x 20" (approx.) body blanks? Thanks!

    Rampart guitars in Canadia make/sell V bodies and iirc they're a lot cheaper than 350 unless you want something really exotic.
