    This was more of a warm up to my real first bass that I am going to do next. I got all the parts from ebay and Guitar parts USA. I don't recommend either of them. I got the neck from GP USA and it has a really bad bow in it but I fixed it as much as I could. Anyway, here are some of the specs...

    Maple neck
    Maple fretboard
    Fretless with lines
    Unknown body wood
    Basslines Quarter Pounders
    Generic tuners and bridge
     
  2. Good job!

    A suggestion for the next one would be to alter your tuner location to make the strings a little straighter when they are pulled across the nut.
