    I just read a thread about someone who I believe was building an bass. I would like to try it and see what I could do. I would definitley devote the time to it.

    I would like to know what I need to build either a bass or amp and cabinet. I hear do-it-yourself's are cheaper too. Some materials or tips or places I can read up

    thnx,

    Do it yourselfs are usually less expensive, but when youa re talking about bass building, the fact of the matter is you usually end up spending about the same amount if not more.

    If you dont have the tools yet, you will end up spending a good deal of money on this kind of project.

    Peace
