so 6 days ago today i decided impulsively (as i usually do) to take the swan dive into bass building, and im loving every second of it. although the math involved can be a little nuts at times, im still enjoying it. as of this point, i have only spent a WHOPPING TOTAL of 40 bucks to build this beast. all thanks to my awesome wood shop teacher Gene DuFault who gave me a big ol' slab of mahogany and several strips of purple heart. so now i cut the ******** and talk some bass! specs -4 string fretless -34 inch scale -maple neck through with two purple heart stripes -mahogany body -single cut body style -arched body -conklin style headstock with slightly more exaggerated curves future mods -MEC electronics -bartolini j pickups -gotoh tuners -standard brass bridge (im working with an older ibanez gio bridge atm ) and now for a brief peak into this beast!
