    I would suggest that you try posting these 2 questions as 2 seperate threads in the "Luthier's Corner" forum on this site. good luck.
     
  3. Some luthiers will build a bass you've designed, but I think it's safe to say that most won't for various reasons.
    If you want to become a luthier yourself, try contacting one who lives nearby, or in the same country as you, and ask her/him how s/he became a professional instrument maker. S/he should have some very good career path advice for you.

  5. Lots of'em, really great luthiers, are autodidacts, that wanted their bass built by themselves, or couldn't get the bass they wanted.
    So start by learning things about woods, and different things from net, and start trying by yourself!
