my gift to you custom dreamers

  1. I went through the trouble of scaling down the dimensions of 4, 5 and 6 string basses to come up with these templates. I got the idea after getting tired of using a straight edge to come up with bass concepts... these are 34 inch scale length with 24 frets (precise lengths) reduced six times. Hope you enjoy them.

  3. wow thats a good idea, ill try to come up with some kinda original design with it. thanks :)
  4. yeah, I'm coming up with a more elabrate template, which is becoming more of a blue print so I can figure out how much room I need for the electronics to work into the design. I'll post it when I'm done.

    Ooo, that's saved on my HD! I'm doing a focus program (1 semester, 4 credit course) next year in grade 12 that's centered around guitar/bass making. Thanks!
