Hey everybody! I have an odd question... I am picking my first bass project back up after stepping away from it for a while, and I have a problem (that was caused by my ignorance, and impatience in the beginning, which prompted the break to do some research! ) that I'm not quite sure how to fix. I already have the body cut out, and the problem is that it's not perfectly flat on the front or the back face. What I mean is that if I lay the body face on a flat surface you can rock it back and forth just a little bit, maybe a 1/16th of an inch. The same applies to the back. I'm not sure how to flatten it, and make the faces parallel, since as I said, the body is already cut out, and the upper horn is only about 1.5-2 inches thick, and extends out past the body several inches. I don't think that flattening one side then planing the other would be safe. I am considering trying to use an old coffee table with sandpaper glued to the top to flatten one face, but then the problem is getting the other face parallel, so that I don't have any funny angles with the neck or anything. What, barring a planer, would you suggest I do to fix this? Or should I just make sure that the faces are nice and flat, and not be too concerned about whether they are parallel? I know I made some real noob mistakes, but I feel like this thing should be able to be recovered without too much fuss, hopefully!! I really want to finish this project, so I can move onto another one with some new lessons in what NOT to do, but also end up with a nice instrument (which, outside of this error, I think I still can) Sorry about the lack of pics, I don't currently have a digi cam, and I am pretty sure that pictures wouldn't help much anyhow in this case. Thanks alot for your input!
