    Firstly, this is my first post so id like to thank anyone who takes the time to read.


    I started project that turned into a hobby when i bought a jazz bass body off a friend... and there was some work to be done!... so i got onto doing my research and buying the parts i needed.

    It was quite straight forward on my first project, all i had to do was buy new parts... I purchased a beautiful maple neck online, and also with hardware. very easy to get my hands on. primer, spray paint and lacquer i got from a local auto motive shop.

    I have attached photos of the completed guitar.

    and now I have recently started a small business from home, in the UK, building and customizing guitars and bass guitars. if anyone is on Facebook, please take a look at my page and see some of the builds and customization i will be doing.


    Please let me know what you think. I appreciate all kinds of feedback.

    Again, please feel free to check out my Facebook page.

  2. You need a business model and something that sets your guitars apart from other Fender clones. Right now all I see are the same parts basses that I have assembled from Ebay orders. Maybe a distinct headstock design and logo?

    I don't know about trademark and copyright laws between USA and UK but what about that Fender headstock? Pretty sure you can't copy that design.

    You also need to build 5 string basses. We need more 5 string P basses. I do anyways!
