I am 19 years old. Been playing bass for about 10 years now and am loving it. I recently have become very interested in making a bass. I have little woodworking experience, but I do know an older gentleman who has a full shop, and works with wood regularly. He doesn't build basses, but he knows his equipment and how to use them. I am going over for a day soon and going to have him show me the tools and how to use them. I'm looking at building just the body right now (I will order a neck from warmoth. Sorry, I just don't even know where to start on a neck..) If I could eventually make a bass out of a nice wood and it is solid overall, would I be able to sell it for a little profit? Many may say, No! You're only a kid or you're not a pro.. But, my response is many luthiers worked with wood as a kid and no one is born a professional. I'm just at a loss. Do I have hope?
