How To Build a Bass book.

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by The Sound of the Police, Sep 17, 2000.


  1. I'm making a custom bass and I was wondering if anyone knew of any books that could be helpful. Something that would tell me how to do the electronics, attach the neck, bridge, action, intonation, etc. A "How to Build" bass would work or maybe a "Custom Shop" or "Repair" book. If anyone has any suggestions please tell me.

    Thanks,

    Try Steward-MacDonald - they have some good tools and books for building a guitar/bass
