well I already started a thread on the luthier's corner about it. here is the link: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=161607 I'm still in the process of putting it together. I have most of it together and still need to do alot of sanding and just a few more cuts to make. there some good pictures on the link. these pictures are the most recent. I used hard rock maple and bloodwood neck through construction with bloodwood for the fingerboard. I ran a 3/8" steel rod down the neck as a non-adjustable truss rod. I am going to use a k&k double big twin pickup mounted on the side of the bridge as it should be and also two other piezo pickups mounted under the bridge with a balance knob to blend the K&K and other two together. This should also create two different types of vibrations to play with. I'm still constructing the bridge, it's going to be made out of maple. It is going to be recessed in the body about 3/4" deep, and the electronics (k&k pure preamp) is going to be disassembled and mounted in the back just above the bridge cutout with the pots and 1/4" jack mounted in the cover plate where I can access them easily. My only unanswered question is how long are brand new strings. I'm concerned I'm going to have to eat up about 6" of string because I made the body short like the ns design EUB. I have a plan but I just cant find out how long thwe strings are. I ordered the d'addario hybrids. let me know what you think. Keep in mind this is my first attempt to build a bass of any sort. I just hope I can get it to sound good.
