Looking for someone to build a bass neck for me

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by theStink, Mar 4, 2014.

  1. Many years ago I used to make basses, turns out college had a way better workshop than I ever could. After moving around the country and starting a family I'm looking at a couple bass bodies I never made necks for. I've made prolly a dozen plus basses but I'm less interested in starting a wood shop as finishing this one bass. I'll post pics in a bit (when I learn my way around the site).

    Basics, 7string body, 2pc maple, 1 pickup, designed around a 24 fret neck, 34" scale.
    Neck pocket is 3 5/8" closest to bridge
    String spacing is 5/8" or 18mm

    Looking for a basic maple neck or maple/rosewood, 20" radius or similar. 4+3 headstock, medium frets, nothing fancy.

    If anyone's up to it PM me. It'd be cool to get this bass body fixed up.
