well, i'm trying to decide what i want to do for my semester project for my english class, and this is one of my choices (luthiery). i was just wondering what it will cost me to build a bass from some pieces of wood. i don't really need anything uber fancy, but i'll probably need a router and definately some wood. i have a bunch of various saws at my house, a drill, and a bunch of sandpaper. if it costs too much i won't be able to do it. but yea, it's worth a shot. any help is appreciated !
