  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.

  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!
