    Forgive me if this is a dumb question.....

    I have been interested in building a 5-string Les Paul bass, and was wondering if the body size of the bass is the same size and shape as a Les Paul guitar. Does anyone know? And if not, where could one get a template for a Les Paul bass body?

    Thanks

    No, it's slightly bigger than the LP guitar
