Topic title pretty much explains it. I've been studying books on building different instruments and looking up web pages on it and things like that, mostly for guitar and electric bass. Now that i've started playing double bass i've been really interested in actually building one. Yes, I am aware of the work and that most of you probably think I should just stop now before I even start, but none the less I'd like to order the materials and attempt to build one. I was just wondering if there are any books/book series and places where i can get blueprints to study, so I can learn the bass specific things and get a general idea of things, and also get into the very specific details. Again, I am aware of the size and scale of this project, even making a guitar is difficult, and I know this will be even more so. I know all of the tools and many hours of this and that, and yes I do have experience with wood working, haha, although I have not attempted an instrument yet. I'd assume i'll build something smaller first, such as a mandolin or an electric guitar or something, to get used to the idea. Well thanks in advance to anyone who can offer some help!
