    Well i thought of a brilliant idea...
    ( Oh by the way, hello first post :p )

    My grandpa likes to build things, and i really like to play bass guitar. I'm 14, and i thought a awesome project would be to make a bass guitar by buying parts online, and putting it together... painting it etc.

    What's the best store that has custom paints etc. on bodies .... online?

    peace out my fellow bass dueling homies :hyper:

    Good luck, and happy building bass brotha!

    The only guidline on this, is you MUST keep us informed and up-to-date on the project, and show us the final project :D :p

    Later,

    It's relly not too hard to put together a bass... Now making all the parts is a whole different story. Have fun with that :bassist:

    Warmoth will do custom body deisgns. You just need to send them a full scale drawing for a quote.

    Remember though: what looks good on paper may not play well or sound nice..
