    I agree with T. Start with reading . I decided I might pursue building a bass sometime in August, and I've just been reading and researching since. The more you read, the more you learn, and the more you know what questions to ask. It's not a bad concept. :D Good luck.

    any recommendations on what to read or where to search.
  6. DIVE IN! DIVE IN! the water is deep and you won't bump your head...so DIVE IN!

    go to amazon.com buy a book or too...read everything you can get your hands on here...

    spend hours of research and then...get yourself a kit bass (like from carvin) as a starter to get some hands on experience...develop it from there....have patience...
    it is a PROCESS! a very LONG....VERY rewarding....process...
