In a couple of months I am going to build a bass. A friend of mine has worked under Greg Curbow. He is going to show me how to go through the process. here are my questions. I am wanting to create a neck through. What are some pointers as to creating this type of bass. I want this bass to be punchy when the rear pickup is favored and smooth when both pickups are favored. I have chosen to use figured myrtle as my top wood and walnut as my body wood. I love the feel and sound of wenge as a neck wood with a maccasar ebony finger board. Will the wenge be easy to work with? how would this combination of woods sound together?
